Assistant Commissioner Patricia Gallan comments upon the conclusion of the phone hacking investigation, Operation Weeting.

AC Patricia Gallan, said: "Those that suffered from having their phones hacked included those who were already victims of crime, and all were greatly affected by the intrusion into their personal lives and the mistrust and paranoia it caused.

"The police investigations into allegations of phone hacking are now complete. I would like to thank the detectives and staff who worked tirelessly on Operation Weeting, gathering, without fear or favour, the evidence which resulted in the conviction of eight journalists and one private investigator; for the exceptional support they provided to the victims and witnesses."
