The scandal broke after the Daily Telegraph reported that the United Kingdom was planning to involve Huawei in building the country's 5G network, citing a leak from the National Security Council.

Sources at the top of government and the Conservative Party say slurs about the prime minister's health were overheard by a senior party official, who reported the former defence secretary's conversation...

The leak from the meeting of the National Security Council about Huawei "did not amount to a criminal offence", United Kingdom police have said. He said "no crime has been committed and this is not a matter for the police".

I am satisfied that the disclosure did not amount to a criminal offence, either under the Official Secrets Act or Misconduct in a Public Office.

It was understood the information leaked from the meeting was not judged by Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill to be of a classification level that would require a criminal investigation.
