Press 'should pixelate faces of children'

12 June 2014 Last updated at 12:28 BST

More regulation is needed to prevent the press from continuing to print information on the private lives of celebrities' children for no reason other than their parents' fame, Hannah Weller has said.

The wife of singer Paul Weller, who in April won £10,000 in damages for her children after their pictures appeared in the Mail Online, said that current guidance on the issue is ignored by the press.

But Ian Murray, president of the Society of Editors, told the Today programme he opposed legislation to control press freedom.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 12 June.
