The former Director of Public Prosecutions has criticised the police after they said their "Plebgate" inquiry will "take as long as it takes".

Lord Macdonald QC said the public and Mr Mitchell both "deserved closure" in relation to the row.

Police are investigating claims that former Conservative cabinet minister Andrew Mitchell called police officers "plebs" in September 2012.
