Alastair Campbell calls for reform of press
Former Downing Street director of communications Alastair Campbell has said the press is "frankly putrid in many of its elements".
Mr Campbell, who worked closely with Tony Blair during his time as prime minister, gave evidence to the Leveson Inquiry into press ethics.
He said many newspapers considered their coverage of the lives of celebrities was a "public service".
