Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has endured attacks from MPs on both sides of the Commons over the Government's controversial legal aid reforms.

On the day a Bar Council poll showed seven out of 10 people in England and Wales were worried that cuts to legal aid could lead to innocent people being convicted of crimes, shadow justice minister Robert Flello asked whether miscarriages of justice were a price worth paying for the reforms.
