The Sun's former managing editor urged the CPS to 'put to sleep' its beleaguered £20m probe into the press as he was formally cleared of all charges today (mon).

Graham Dudman, 51, has suffered three years of 'mental torment' after being accused of paying police officers and prison guards while working at the tabloid newspaper.

He was first arrested in January 2012, endured a three month trial that saw him acquitted of one charge, and was facing a retrial on the remain two allegations.
