The Met's Deputy Assistant Commissioner Sue Akers has told The Leveson inquiry that alleged corrupt payments made to two prison officers by journalists didn't produce anything in the public interest.
She told the inquiry that detectives had analysed stories potentially linked to payments to two prison officers at separate high security prisons:
It's our assessment that there are reasonable grounds to suspect offences have been committed and that the majority of these stories reveal very limited material of genuine public interest.
