Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair is fighting to save his job after secretly taping a phone conversation with a senior minister.

He recorded a 10-minute call with the Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith, last September without him knowing, it has emerged. Lord Goldsmith has complained to the Home Secretary Charles Clarke and Sir Ian has since apologised.

Sir Ian has also admitted to taping calls with senior officials from the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

So if the country’s top policeman is being criticised, what are the rules when it comes to recording phone conversations?
