Police rule out new phone hack enquiry

Now I find all this rather incredible. 3000-odd famous people have had their phones tapped by the News of the World so the Guardian alleges. The country is hopping mad today. The police have a two minute enquiry and Yates of the Yard pops up to say there is "insufficient evidence" to carry out a further investigation.

What does that mean? That there is some evidence but he couldn't get the necessary proof to pin an arrest on anybody? Either there is no evidence and it is all a fabrication or there is some evidence. Using weasel words like "insufficient evidence" just leaves us all thinking that there is no smoke without fire.

The clean-up of public life is still awaited, then?
