10 staff at Scotland Yard worked for NI

Ten members of staff at Scotland Yard’s directorate of public affairs (DPA) have previously worked for News International, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Paul Stephenson said today.

Giving evidence to the Commons Home Affairs Committee, Mr Stephenson said that former News International employees and interns accounted for almost a quarter of the DPA’s staff of 45.

“I understand that there are ten members of the DPA staff who have worked in News International in the past, in some cases journalists, in some cases undertaking work experience with the organisation,” he said.
