UK: MP sorry over WhatsApp honeytrap, David Cameron in US

From Nine To Noon, 9:45 am on 11 April 2024

UK correspondent Dan Bloom joins Kathryn to update a story he broke about a spear-phishing scandal at Westminster. Tory MP William Wragg has apologised and "voluntarily" given up the whip after he was targeted in the honeytrap plot and passed on some of his colleagues' numbers. Meanwhile Foreign Secretary David Cameron has been in the US, talking up aid for Ukraine and confirming the UK government won't suspend arms exports to Israel.
