Former Cabinet minister Andrew Mitchell has told ITV News that the IPCC report into the 'plebgate' row was an "important report" as he reiterated his gratitude to the police watchdog following the sentencing of a police officer over the affair.
He said: "I think the IPCC report is an important report and I've issued a statement about that in which, on behalf of myself and my family, I've said how grateful we are both to the IPCC and of course to Channel 4 and Dispatches who originally broke this story."
