Labour MP Calls for Police Investigation into Mirror Corruption

One of the Labour MPs at the heart of the phone hacking scandal has called for the police to investigate Mirror editor Richard Wallace’s admission at Leveson that his paper had paid public officials. In a Twitter ding-dong with former Screws Chief Reporter Neville Thurlbeck, who has written extensively today about Wallace’s admissions, Chris Bryant was backed into a corner before eventually declaring that “yes, of course” the paper should be investigated.

Though Bryant immediately backtracked and suggested that there was not enough evidence, there is much more than he had when he demanded the police investigate Coulson and Brooks in 2003. Guido is looking forward to the furious press releases and Bryant popping up on the telly any moment now…
