Sir Kim Darroch stepped down as ambassador to the US on Wednesday, saying it was “impossible” for him to continue.

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said he was satisfied the leak had damaged UK international relations and there would be a “clear public interest” in bringing those responsible to justice.
