UN body wants probe of climate e-mail row
The head of the UN’s climate science body says claims that UK scientists manipulated data on global warming should be investigated.
Dr Rajendra Pachauri, head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said the matter could not be swept "under the carpet".
The allegations emerged after e-mails written and received by UK climate researchers appeared on the internet.
The police are investigating whether the scientists’ computers were hacked.
Dr Pachauri told BBC Radio 4’s The Report programme that the claims were serious and he wants them investigated.
