Hacking: 'James Murdoch was told of email', says Crone

Former News of the World legal manager Tom Crone has told MPs he was "certain" he told James Murdoch about an email which indicated phone hacking at the paper went beyond one rogue reporter.

Mr Crone said the email was discussed and "it was the reason that we had to settle the case".

The paper's former editor Colin Myler also told MPs the email was discussed.

In a previous hearing, News Corp bosses Rupert and James Murdoch said they were not told of an email.
