Leveson Inquiry: Editor feared extent of hacking

Ex-News of the World editor Colin Myler has said he feared "bombs under the newsroom floor" in the form of possible widespread wrongdoing in the past.

He "always had some discomfort", but accepted phone hacking must have been limited because police had not shown otherwise, he told the Leveson Inquiry.

Mr Myler took the job in 2007, after a reporter and private investigator had been jailed for phone hacking.
