Piers Morgan 'warned Paxman' over voicemail security

Piers Morgan warned Jeremy Paxman that he would be 'a fool' if he did not use the security settings on his mobile phone to protect his voicemail messages, according to the Newsnight host.

Mr Paxman said the incident with Mr Morgan happened at a lunch organised by newspaper group Trinity Mirror "about 10 years ago".

The BBC presenter was giving evidence to the Leveson Inquiry looking at standards of ethics in the media.

He said he heard Piers Morgan telling Ms Jonsson he knew about her phone conversations with Sven-Goran Eriksson.
