Jenny Jones: Members of phone hacking police investigation must have clean hands

Jenny Jones, Green party member of the Metropolitan Police Authority, says she will seek assurances that no-one in the current police investigation has ever accepted money from the press:

"I will be asking the commissioner to reassure the public that all the officers involved in Operation Weeting and Operation Elveden have clean hands and have not received payments or gifts for information from journalists and investigators in the past.

"There is a public suspicion that this has been a widespread practice in the past with the police providing tip offs and nuggets of information to journalists and photographers. I would be happy with a simple statement being made by officers of all ranks involved in both the current investigation and the initial investigation, that they have not received such payments at any point in their careers."
