Leveson Inquiry: Model's ex-adviser 'sent to rehab'

Elle Macpherson's ex-adviser Mary-Ellen Field has been telling the Leveson Inquiry how she was fired over media stories about the top model.

Ms Field told the inquiry she and Ms Macpherson had enjoyed a "thriving business relationship" until the model suddenly accused her of talking to the press.

She was later told she was going to be fired unless she attended a meeting and agreed to go to a rehabilitation centre for alleged alcoholism.

Asked if she was in fact alcoholic, Ms Field told the inquiry she was not.
