David Cameron warns over 'revenge' regulation on media

David Cameron has warned MPs not to be too "gleeful" about regulating the media as some sort of "revenge" for the MPs' expenses scandal.

He told a committee of senior MPs he wanted "tougher independent regulation that is not government controlled".

The scandal, which ended careers and resulted in several prosecutions, began when claims were leaked to the press.

Mr Cameron was quizzed about politicians' relationship with the media, and tighter media regulation, in a question session with the Commons liaison committee.
