Thousands of crime suspects are to be housed in flats and houses in cities around England and Wales while awaiting trial, in an emergency measure to ease prison overcrowding. Hundreds of low-risk criminals with no fixed address are also expected to benefit by becoming eligible for early release on a tag.
