Dee Doocey: Met’s cosy relationship with the News of the World must now end.

July 6, 2011 11:24 AM
Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats

"These incredibly serious allegations confirm my long standing view that the relationship between the News of the World and the Metropolitan Police has been far too cosy.

"It was simply wrong that the senior Metropolitan Police officer who headed up Scotland Yard's initial inquiry into phone hacking dined with News of the World executives whilst there was a criminal investigation ongoing into the newspaper.

"Nothing short of a public inquiry will satisfy the public that these matters have now been thoroughly investigated."
