Scottish party leaders at odds on regulated press

The Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson and the Scottish Lib Dem leader Willie Rennie have expressed differing views on press regulation.

The pair were speaking on BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme ahead of a Holyrood debate on the findings of the Leveson Inquiry into newspaper standards and ethics.

Ms Davidson believes the way the press goes about its business will change following Lord Justice Leveson's investigation, which was launched following the phone hacking scandal.

However, she has insisted that state regulation will not be needed to enact those changes.

The Lib Dems' Mr Rennie said that a new way of working for the press would require legal underpinning at a UK-wide level.
