MP's office swept for bugging devices (photos)

UK - MP Damian Green has had his Kent home and constituency office swept for bugging devices amid concerns that he may have been monitored as part of the Home Office probe into a series of leaks.

His car, which was impounded by the police, and his Westminster office have also been checked.
