One of the killers of toddler James Bulger is back behind bars after breaching the conditions of his release from prison.

Jon Venables, 27, who with Robert Thompson abducted and murdered James in February 1993, was released from custody in 2001, but he has been recalled following the breach, a Ministry of Justice spokeswoman said.

She added: "We can confirm that Jon Venables has been recalled to custody following a breach of licence conditions.

"Offenders on licence are subject to strict conditions; if they breach those conditions they are subject to immediate recall.

"There is a worldwide injunction in place that prohibits any reporting including reporting on the internet, that could identify him or his location."

Details of the nature of the breach were not released.

Venables and Thompson were aged 10 when they embarked on a crime that stunned the world.

On February 13, 1993, they abducted James from a shopping centre and killed him on a railway line.

The toddler's battered body was found by children playing on a freight railway line 200 yards from Walton Lane police station, Liverpool, and more than two miles from the Strand shopping centre.

Days later Venables and Thompson were arrested in connection with the murder of James, and later charged. They were the youngest to be charged with murder in the 20th century.

Whatever it is, I bet it uses the word 'tot', a word that you never see anywhere else but in shit newspapers talking about kids that are dead or molested. 'Tragic tot'

I'll take your "Tot" and raise you a BBC with a Ross kicker. Double or quits on a "Broken Britain". Ever played Daily Mail bingo?

Nothing will beat the British Times last year when there was talk of scrapping the Pound. A photograph of Big Ben with flames photoshopped over it and the headline "BRITAIN: THE END".

Speaking of predictable headlines, when the John Terry story was on the front page of The Sun and I bet my manager that the three paragraphs under his picture would contain the words "love rat" and "romped". I won the bet. The Sun is also the only place you will ever see the word "Lag". Anyway, on-topic... Yoghurt wins.

The Sun's more likely to come up with "What's the difference between Terry and John Venables? one was at Selhurst Park, the other's in a Parkhurst cell. Arf."

As night-time leads to day, your heart is gonna have to stray in and out of harm's way.

Current whispers are that Jon Venables recall to prison may be related to drugs also led to believe he was returned to prison last week but it's only just come to light in the form of an official press release as one of the tabloids were about to break the story

There were rumours a couple of years ago that he was being prescribed methodone, which if true, means that a breach of his licence wasn't followed up.

Would you have wished the same treatment on him when he first committed the crime as a ten-year-old?

No. But I would have liked him to live in fear of the fact that it might happen as a ten-year-old. And I would have liked him to be unshadowed by the cloak of anonymity when he was released from prison.

Why? So someone could attack him? Would that make the world a better place or something?

From today's copy of The Sun:

ONE of the killers of toddler James Bulger was back in prison last night after breaching the conditions of his release.

Jon Venables, now 27, broke strict rules which include a ban on him contacting his fellow murderer Robert Thompson or the Bulger family.


Venables and Thompson - given new identities when freed in 2001 - killed two-year-old James on Merseyside in 1993.


The mother of murdered James said last night that Venables' arrest was "justice" for her son.



Murdered ... James Bulger, twoDenise Fergus spoke out on her Twitter site: "Would like to let everyone know jon venables is where he belongs tonight behind bars this is my sons justice."

Her husband Stuart Fergus added that he was "thinking when will this all end for my wife!!!"

News of Venables' return to prison came two weeks before James would have celebrated his 19th birthday.

Venables and his killer pal Thompson were handed new identities when they were freed in 2001 - along with a list of conditions, banning them from contacting each other or the Bulger family.



CCTV film ... James is led awayVenables was also ordered not to return to Merseyside - where he and Thompson committed their terrible crime when they were ten - without the written consent of his probation officer.

A spokesman for Denise, 42, said: "She has always said she did not believe it was safe to parole Venables and Thompson at the age of 18 before they had ever spent a day in an adult prison.

"She believes this breach of parole shows she was right.



Worry ... mum Denise"The Probation Service has promised to keep Denise informed about progress in the case and has assured her she was not in danger at any time.

"But she believes she and the public have a right to know what Venables has done and what is to be done with him now he is an adult offender."

Venables was locked up again after being subject to "immediate recall". He will remain behind bars INDEFINITELY until the Parole Board decides if and when he can be re-released.

In theory, he could be kept inside for the rest of his life.

It was not clear if he had re-offended or broken other terms of his parole.

A Ministry of Justice spokeswoman said last night: "We can confirm Jon Venables has been recalled to custody following a breach of licence conditions.

"Offenders on licence are subject to strict conditions. If they breach those conditions they are subject to immediate recall."



Hunt ... cops gather evidence where body was found in 1993Criminal law expert Michael Wolkind QC said there was a "significant chance" the breach had been serious after all the trouble taken by the authorities to arrange Venables' new life.

The torture and murder of James after he was snatched from a Bootle shopping mall shocked the world.

The pals threw modelling paint in the tot's face, kicked him and beat him with bricks, stones and a 22lb iron bar. Then they stuffed batteries in his mouth.

James' mutilated body was found on a railway line in nearby Walton two days later. His injuries were so severe medics were unable to determine how he died.



Freed ... Robert Thompson
Venables and Thompson - the youngest children to be convicted of murder in English history - were freed amid controversy over how long they should have served.

And in an unprecedented move, they were granted anonymity for the rest of their days.

Even the jail where Venables is being held cannot be disclosed because of a legal injunction.

He is there under his assumed name, but other lags may soon cotton on to his true identity.

It is not even possible to tell how Venables has changed from the last picture of him when he was a boy.

He is entitled to launch an appeal in a bid to regain his freedom.

Laurence Lee, his solicitor at the time of the 1993 murder, said last night he was "shocked" by the dramatic development.
