Intelligence and Security Committee publishes long-awaited findings of inquiry prompted by Edward Snowden leaks

The Intelligence and Security Committee will today release a report into laws governing the intelligence agencies' access to private communications. 

The report has considered whether laws governing surveillance are sufficient for the internet age and "fit for purpose".

The inquiry began in 2013 after US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden leaked information about data-gathering by UK and US agencies. A press conference is scheduled for 10:15am.
