Met chief 'hopes' for justice in Daniel Morgan case

Britain's most senior policeman says he is hoping to bring a prosecution in the case of the murdered private investigator Daniel Morgan.

Mr Morgan from Cwmbran was murdered nearly 30 years. he was found in a London car park with an axe in his head.

Giving evidence to MPs at the Home Affairs Select Committee Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, Metropolitan Police commissioner said he hoped to find a way to bring justice to those involved in Mr Morgan's death.

The announcement follows criticism that vital documents from an earlier inquiry were shredded.

Last year, Home Secretary Theresa May announced that a retired judge would lead a panel to look at any police involvement in his murder and the possible role played by corruption in protecting those who killed him.
