Chris Grayling orders investigation into prison call monitoring

An investigation into the recording of telephone calls between prisoners and their constituency MPs has been ordered by the justice secretary.

Chris Grayling said confidential conversations may have been taped and listened to by prison staff between 2006 and 2012.

Mr Grayling apologised to the Commons and said at least 32 current MPs could have been affected.
