The Metropolitan Police is considering whether to take disciplinary action against its head of public affairs over his links to a former News of the World executive.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said it had finished its inquiry into Dick Fedorcio and was "waiting to hear from [the Met] regarding their proposed course of action".

Mr Fedorcio was investigated for misconduct after the Met handed a PR contract to a company run by Neil Wallis, the former deputy editor of the tabloid. Mr Fedorcio has been on leave since August.
