Daniel Morgan's family paid £50k over police 'failings'

The family of murdered Welsh private investigator Daniel Morgan will receive £50,000 for "bringing to light the failings of the Metropolitan Police."

Daniel Morgan, from Cwmbran, was found dead in a London car park in 1987.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, approved a request from the Greater London Authority to provide "financial recognition" to his family, for the "general social benefit" their campaigning has brought - and "the detriment which they have suffered in pursuing this matter."
