She will also be calling on the Mayor of London Boris Johnson to support her call for his resignation at July's Mayor Question Time, taking place at City Hall tomorrow (Wednesday 13th July).

Commenting Dee said:

"It is shameful that John Yates found time to have a five lunches with the News of the World and News International, but after just a few hours decided there was no additional evidence to justify a further investigation into phone hacking.

"John Yates has failed literally hundreds of victims of phone hacking. While he remains in post as Assistant Commissioner of the Met its reputation will not recover.

"He must take responsibility for this pitiful review and accept that he has lost all credibility. It is time for him to go."
