Miliband: Hunt should step down

Labour leader Ed Miliband has said Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt's position is untenable.

He said the government was out of touch in trying to "cling on to him" after revelations about Mr Hunt's role in NewsCorp's BSkyB takeover bid.

"He was standing up for Rupert Murdoch when he should have been standing up for the British people," Mr Miliband told the BBC.
