Straw orders bugging inquiry - British soldiers charged over bar brawl - MPs' spending in the spotlight - Brit Dies In 'Ski Mattress' Crash - Downing Street responds to bugging claim.

Straw orders bugging inquiry
Justice Secretary Jack Straw ordered an immediate inquiry on Sunday into allegations that Scotland Yard anti-terrorist police secretly bugged an MP during private conversations with a constituent in prison.
The Sunday Times reported that Sadiq Khan, a government whip and Labour MP for Tooting, was bugged twice while meeting the constituent, who was in prison awaiting deportation to the United States to face terrorism charges.

British soldiers charged over bar brawl
Nine British soldiers are facing charges including grievous bodily harm and malicious damage in connection to a bar brawl in Cyprus. It is understood that the charges arose from an incident at the Bedrock bar in the coastal town of Ayia Napa on Friday night. The soldiers were out celebrating their final pay day before their tour of duty of Cyprus ended, said British Forces in Cyprus spokesman Dennis Barnes. They have all been confined to barracks pending an investigation.

MPs' spending in the spotlight
Britons appear less than pleased with MPs who have family members on their payroll. An ICM Poll for the Sunday Telegraph showed 74 per cent of respondents think MPs should not employ members of their own families, while only 20 per cent believe it is OK. It follows revelations that MP Derek Conway paid his sons tens of thousands of pounds to work for him, even though they were studying full-time at University.

Brit Dies In 'Ski Mattress' Crash
A British man has died in a high-speed accident at a ski resort in Italy. David Monk, 46, was killed after he crashed into a barrier while sliding down a mountain on a mattress on Saturday night. A second man needed hospital treatment after being hurt in the same incident, which took place near Susa, close to Turin in northern Italy. A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Downing Street responds to bugging claim
Prime Minister Gordon Brown "knows nothing" about shadow home secretary David Davis' claims he warned him about an MP being bugged. A Downing Street spokeswoman said: "We have received a number of letters from David Davis since the beginning of December, on matters such as the Humber bridge, the Security Industry Authority and Licensing laws. "But having conducted a detailed check, we have no record of receiving a letter about the bugging of MPs. Consequently the Prime Minister knows nothing about this letter."
