Phone hacking: Media mogul Murdoch grilled by MPs

Rupert Murdoch has appeared before MPs with his son James, to answer questions about the phone-hacking scandal.

He said it was the 'most humble day' of his life, but refused to take personal responsibility for the crisis which engulfed the News of the World.

Rebekah Brooks, former chief executive at News International, also appeared and insisted the company had acted 'quickly and decisively' when presented with new evidence.

Nick Robinson reports.
