Paul Stephenson: No 10 aide warned me not to tell Cameron | Media | guardian.co.uk

Sir Paul Stephenson, the outgoing Metropolitan police commissioner, has told MPs he was advised by a senior Downing Street official not to risk "compromising" the prime minister by disclosing to him information related to the phone-hacking scandal.

Stephenson said he was unable to name the No 10 aide but that outgoing Met assistant commissioner, John Yates, who also resigned over the phone-hacking scandal, would know. Yates later told the same home affairs select committee that it was No 10 chief of staff Ed Llewellyn who turned down his offer to brief Downing Street on the "nuances" of the hacking investigation after the New York Times story in September 2010.

Completely damning. Llewellen has to go, surely. His boss too, of course.
