Former FBI Director James Comey has been criticised in a Department of Justice report for the leak of memos on his interactions with President Trump.

An internal watchdog said Mr Comey had failed to “live up” to his duty to safeguard sensitive information.

The watchdog said Mr Comey broke FBI rules by giving a memo to a friend who shared its contents with a reporter.

But the inspector general report said it was not recommending that Mr Comey be prosecuted for the breach.
