The Sunday Times is reporting that Metropolitian Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe is under growing pressure to resign over the leaking of details of the police inquiry into the Andrew Mitchell 'Plebgate' affair.
A freedom of information (FoI) request has reportedly revealed that Hogan-Howe had a private meeting with journalists just before they wrote articles claiming officers had found no evidence to support the former cabinet minister’s version of events.
The newspaper says the reply from Hogan-Howe’s office to the FoI request suggested that the meeting did take place but failed to disclose details of what was said.
Mitchell’s friends are now calling for Hogan-Howe to explain what was said at the meeting and provide details of his diary, tape recordings and notes.
The lack of detail has led to allegations of a cover up and calls from senior Conservatives for the commissioner to resign.

The family of the five year-old girl who died in a pool yesterday at the Egyptian report of Sharm-el-Sheikh have said they don't want a similar tragedy to happen to anyone else. It's thought Chloe Johnson from Forest Hill may have drowned when a wave machine was turned on. Piers Hopkirk reports.
The general manager of the Egyptian resort Coral Sea Waterworld, where a 5-year-old British girl drowned in the hotel's pool, has said that the Egyptian police and district attorney are working along with the hotel into the investigation. Ashraf Khalil said:
We are also, in collaboration with First Choice, flying in investigators from the UK today. We want to see the facts and the most important fact here is that our hearts and souls are with the family and with little Chloe.
We have moved them from the scene of the hotel so they can at least not be in premises where the accident happened. We are taking care of them so they are not bothered in this time of grief and we wish to express our deepest condolences to them.
We are sorry this has happened. When the investigation concludes we will be able to give answers.
