Mystery of The Sun’s ‘exclusives’ during Joanna Yeates murder hunt | Media | guardian.co.uk

So how did The Sun come by such sensitive information?

That question will be asked again tonight when Brodie’s Points West segment is rebroadcast at a Bristol seminar attended by the Press Complaints Commission chairman, Lord Hunt, and Christopher Jefferies.

The 2012 Benn debate, “Hacked to bits: rebuilding public trust in journalism”, begins at 7.30pm in the Arnolfini. It will be filmed and streamed live by the University of the West of England.

But several questions about this matter must also be raised by Lord Justice Leveson when Port appears before him.

How does the chief constable explain the publication of the confidential information such as the missing sock episode?

How does he explain the paper obtaining the identities and addresses of the Ikea delivery men?

And why, when one of the men complained to his police force, was he told that detectives were under the impression that the investigative team had been eavesdropped?
