Carmichael: 'Full responsibility' for leaked Sturgeon memo

The former Scottish Secretary Alistair Carmichael has been forced to admit that he was behind a leak to the media of a controversial memo during the general election campaign.

The leak suggested Nicola Sturgeon told the French Ambassador she wanted David Cameron to remain as prime minister.

Mr Carmichael said it was an error of judgement and he accepted "the details of the account are not correct".
