Metropolitan Police is accused of phone-hacking failures

The Metropolitan Police have been accused of a "catalogue of failures" over the News of the World phone-hacking inquiry, in a damning report by MPs.

The Commons home affairs committee also criticises News International's "deliberate attempts to thwart investigations" into hacking.

It is calling for extra resources for the police investigation so new hacking victims can be informed more quickly.

Matt Prodger reports.
