The Times runs another police leak upping the pressure on Andrew Mitchell this morning. They have an email showing Downing Street police asked for advice over Mitchell’s repeated demands to break security rules and cycle through the main gates the night before it all kicked off.

“[Mitchell] keeps requesting to leave Downing Street via the main vehicle gates. [He was] adamant he WAS GOING THROUGH THOSE GATES. As it was quite late and quiet at this point and in order not to create embarrassment to himself or the DPG [Diplomatic Protection Group] he was allowed on this occasion to leave via one of the main gates.”
Regardless of where these leaks are coming from, they don’t look good for Mitchell at all…
