The Sun's Trevor Kavanagh attacks journalists' arrests

Police raids which led to the arrest of five Sun journalists have been attacked by the paper's associate editor.

Trevor Kavanagh told the BBC the paper's publisher - News International - was the subject of a "witch-hunt".

He described the raids and the scale of the investigation into the company as "disproportionate".

The reporters were arrested in connection with alleged corrupt payments to police and others. The Met Police has declined to comment.

June Kelly reports.
