Newspaper which published ambassador's memos may have breached Official Secrets Act, former minister claims

The newspaper which published leaked messages from the UK’s ambassador in Washington may have breached the Official Secrets Act, a former cabinet minister has suggested.

Sir Michael Fallon said it was “logical” that police should tell journalists to hand back any leaked official documents which have come into their possession and warned that further publication may break the law.

The Mail on Sunday’s publication of excerpts from “diptels” - diplomatic telegrams - by Sir Kim Darroch has sparked a furious trans-Atlantic row and led to the ambassador’s resignation earlier this week.
