Press regulation talks create 'divisions'

Cross-party talks on the Leveson press reforms have broken down, the prime minister has said.

He said he would publish plans for a Royal Charter to establish a tougher press regulator on Monday and urged them to support the proposals.

But Labour and the Lib Dems say the plans will give newspapers too much discretion over press regulation.
