Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre rails against regulation

The press is in danger of being over regulated according to the Daily Mail's editor Paul Dacre.

Mr Dacre was addressing a seminar on media standards ahead of the Leveson inquiry into the phone-hacking scandal.

He also questioned why Lord Justice Leveson's inquiry had greater powers than the public inquiry into the Iraq war.

Mr Dacre said the Press Complaints Commission, of which he is the current chair, had changed the "culture of Fleet Street" and its Editors' Code was strictly adhered to.
