|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.
Police have detained 52 people during Operation Elveden as they investigated alleged corrupt payments made to police officers and other public officials. Of those, 21 are journalists at the Sun newspaper.
Sue Akers, formerly in charge of the investigation, has said Operation Elveden has spread beyond News International to include alleged payments from Trinity Mirror and Express Newspapers.
