No further action is to be taken in the phone hacking operations, Weeting and Golding, the Crown Prosecution Service has announced.
It says there is "insufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of a conviction".
The CPS has looked in great detail at the comprehensive files submitted to us by the police, both in relation to corporate liability at News Group Newspapers and against 10 individuals at Mirror Group Newspapers for alleged phone hacking.
After a thorough analysis, we have decided there is insufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of a conviction and therefore no further action will be taken in any of these cases.
Ms Saunders added that over the past three years, 12 prosecutions have been brought and which resulted in nine convictions.
Operation Weeting and Operation Golding looked into alleged allegations of phone hacking and other wrongdoing by journalists and staff at News Group and Mirror Group newspapers.
