Guardian News and Media, the publisher of the Observer, has released a statement following Alex Salmond's allegation his bank account was hacked by an Observer reporter.
The allegation was made during Scotland's First Minister's evidence at the Leveson Inquiry.
Mr Salmond first raised the matter of an alleged unauthorised access of his bank account with the Observer's editor last year. The allegation was that a journalist working for the Observer had accessed his bank details in 1999. As we explained to him last year, on the basis of the information he had given us, we have been unable to find any evidence to substantiate his allegation. As our response to him at the time made clear, we take this allegation very seriously and if he is able to provide us with any more information we will investigate further.
