Prosecutors will announce on Tuesday if they believe they have enough evidence to bring criminal charges following a police investigation into alleged illegal payments by journalists to public officials.

The Crown Prosecution Service will reveal on Tuesday morning its charging decisions following Operation Elveden.

The Metropolitan police has been conducting the investigation and has arrested a series of journalists and public officials.
