Police inquiry into Miranda material

Police have launched a criminal inquiry after seizing thousands of classified intelligence documents from the partner of a Guardian journalist.

Scotland Yard says it is examining the "highly sensitive material" after detaining David Miranda at Heathrow airport on Sunday.

An injunction limits them from looking at, copying or sharing any information except to protect national security.
