The announcement that the Tory MP Nigel Mills will be investigated by the House of Commons for playing online game Candy Crush during a meeting at work is a warning for companies to update their policies for how employees use personal electronic equipment in the workplace, says leading law firm Irwin Mitchell.

The Amber Valley MP was secretly photographed playing the game during a Work and Pensions select committee meeting.

Mr Mills told the newspaper: "It was a long meeting on pension reforms, which is an important issue that I take very seriously.

"There was a bit of the meeting that I wasn't focusing on and I probably had a game or two.

"I shouldn't do it but if you check the meeting I would say I was fully engaged in asking questions that I thought were particularly important in how we get the pensions issue right. I shall try not to do it in the future."
