Richard Madeley shown NoW surveillance footage

Richard Madeley has described surveillance video taken by a private detective who was hired by the News of the World as "repulsive".

The TV presenter was shown footage obtained by Newsnight from the private detective - who was hired by the paper even after the phone-hacking scandal had begun.

On Thursday, News International chairman James Murdoch will appear before the Commons media committee investigating how his paper hacked into the phones of so many in pursuit of splash stories.

Richard Watson reports.
