Leveson report: Rival proposals over press regulation

Competing visions for the future of press regulation were published on Friday afternoon by the main political parties.

The Conservatives say a Royal Charter should establish a new independent self-regulatory body.

Labour and the Liberal Democrats have issued joint proposals which call for the system to be underpinned by new legislation, as recommended by Lord Justice Leveson.

They also say newspapers should not be able to veto who sits on the regulatory board.

Labour leader Ed Miliband outlined his reasons for the latest proposals.

These have been backed by Gerry McCann, whose daughter Madeleine went missing in Portugal in 2007.
