Operation Elveden: Reporter's relief at not guilty verdict

Three journalists have been found not guilty of illegally paying public officials by a jury at the Old Bailey.

Ex-Daily Mirror reporter Graham Brough and the Sun's Neil Millard and Brandon Malinsky were cleared of conspiring to commit misconduct in public office.

Speaking outside court, Mr Brough spoke of his great relief that "professional reporter have not been criminalised".

Sun reporter Tom Wells was also cleared of two counts.

The jury was discharged after failing to agree verdicts on a third charge against Mr Wells and one count against ex-immigration officer Mark Blake.
