Channel 4 and ITN statement

Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders said on Tuesday: “The CCTV footage that has been aired publicly was edited and did not show the full picture.”

In response, Channel 4 and ITN said: “The CCTV footage was obtained by Andrew Mitchell from Downing Street and provided to Dispatches and Channel 4 News. The footage as broadcast for the first time on 18 December 2012 was not edited by the production team to change or alter the sequence of events.

“Furthermore the three camera angles that we were provided with were image-matched frame by frame to confirm their veracity. We stand fully behind this investigation.”
