Scotland Yard criticised for employing former News of the World executive

Senior Scotland Yard staff showed poor judgement in their relationship with ex-News of the World executive Neil Wallis, the police watchdog says.

Mr Wallis was appointed as an adviser to the Met in 2009 and his daughter also secured a job with the force.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) found no evidence of corruption but said policies were breached and boundaries "blurred".

Tom Symonds reports.
