Phone hacking: Cameron's 'regret' over hiring Coulson

Prime Minister David Cameron has told MPs that "with hindsight" he would not have hired ex-News of the World editor Andy Coulson as Downing Street's head of communications.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Mr Cameron said: "Of course I regret, and I am extremely sorry, about the furore it has caused."

Labour leader Ed Miliband has accused the prime minister of a "catastrophic error of judgement".
