NOTW Lawyer: Murdoch cover-up claims a 'shameful lie'

Rupert Murdoch has told the Leveson Inquiry that staff at the News of the World kept him in the dark by covering up the phone-hacking scandal. But the paper's former lawyer, Tom Crone, has accused Mr Murdoch of telling a 'shameful lie'.

Mr Murdoch's difficulties were further compounded on Thursday by the media regulator OFCOM, which announced it is widening its investigation into whether BSkyB is a 'fit and proper' owner of a broadcasting licence.

Robert Peston reports.
