Lack of "personal responsibility" was at the heart of the Shannon Matthews case, a senior police officer has said.

West Yorkshire Chief Constable Norman Bettison told BBC One's Panorama programme that the nine-year-old's mother, Karen Matthews, had lived her life "without the sense of having to answer for the consequences of her actions".

He said that in his experience Shannon's family were "people who actually don't socialise beyond a small group of people... no holidays, no going to town, no going to the cinema - if it doesn't go on in their house, or a house nearby it doesn't happen as far as they're concerned.

"They aren't socialised in the way that society is generally socialised in terms of norms of behaviour."

He said their normal standard of behaviour was "whatever they could get away with".
