Leveson report: Call for independent regulatory body for press

29 November 2012 Last updated at 14:02 GMT

The Leveson report into press standards has recommended a tougher form of self-regulation backed by legislation.

Lord Justice Leveson said the body must be independent of industry leaders, government and politicians.

He said the press had failed to properly regulate itself in the past, but he believed the law could be used to "validate" a new body.
