Revealed Afghan memo 'low level' says William Hague

A senior minister has accidentally revealed a UK government briefing document "welcoming" the departure of Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell was photographed clutching the note as he left No 10.

Foreign Secretary William Hague has dismissed the severity of the incident, telling the BBC that Mr Mitchell was carrying a "low-level briefing document".
