Met police in 'worst crisis' following hacking row

Met Police Assistant Commissioner John Yates has resigned as the phone-hacking scandal fall-out continues.

His decision to quit comes a day after the resignation of Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson.

Mr Yates said his "conscience was clear" and Sir Paul Stephenson has denied any wrongdoing.

Mark Easton reports on what is being described at the Met Police force's "worst crisis" in 40 years.
