Assistant Commissioner John Yates of the Metropolitan Police Service is today the centre of controversy about whether or not he misled UK Parliamentary Select Committees inquiring into phone hacking by (or on behalf of) one or more News of the World journalists.
Essentially, the question at issue seems to be whether Yates misled Members of Parliament about the number of people whose phone messages had been hacked.
Now, Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions has given written evidence to MPs which appears to show that Yates misled the MPs when he gave evidence some time ago.

Will Yates resign?
