HSBC tax row whistleblower Falciani: 'This is my e-mail'

An email which Herve Falciani, the whistleblower at the centre of the HSBC tax row, says that he sent to HM Revenue and Customs in 2008 has been uncovered by a French newspaper.

HMRC said it had no record of the email.

But Mr Falciani said he had offered it information on clients from one of the five biggest private banks "in the world" that is "based in Switzerland".

He told the BBC's Kamal Ahmed it was "really nice" to see that his email had surfaced.
