Ed Miliband calls for Jeremy Hunt to go

Labour leader Ed Miliband has stepped up pressure on Jeremy Hunt to resign saying "it beggars belief", that the culture secretary is still in his job.

He told BBC News that the "accumulation of evidence" about Mr Hunt's links with News Corp when he was considering its BSkyB bid made his position untenable.

"He was standing up for Rupert Murdoch when he should have been standing up for the public interest," he said.

Mr Hunt is resisting calls to quit, saying he has "behaved with integrity". Vicky Young reports.
