Leveson Inquiry: Ex-News International boss gives evidence

Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt sought "private advice" from News Corporation over phone hacking, an email given to the Leveson Inquiry has suggested.

The previously unseen email, sent to ex-News International boss Rebekah Brooks by the firm's PR chief Frederic Michel, says Mr Hunt wanted "guidance".

Mr Hunt is under pressure over links between his former aide and Mr Michel.

Meanwhile, Mrs Brooks' evidence revealed more about her contact with senior politicians, including David Cameron, as Philippa Thomas reports.
