Jeremy Hunt under pressure over Leveson disclosures

Labour says Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt should resign after Leveson Inquiry evidence appeared to show his support for News Corp's bid for BSkyB.

During evidence from James Murdoch, the inquiry presented News Corp emails that appeared to show Mr Hunt had privately expressed support for the controversial bid in 2010/2011.

Labour leader Ed Miliband said Mr Hunt had acted as a "back channel" for the Murdochs and should step down.

Mr Hunt has insisted he "conducted this process with scrupulous fairness", as the BBC's Robert Peston reports.
