Leveson Inquiry: Cameron explains 'in this together' Brooks text

A text message sent by Rebekah Brooks to David Cameron in October 2009 was read to the Leveson inquiry in which the former Sun editor said she was "rooting for him", both as "a personal friend" and because "professionally we're definitely in this together".

The PM said that was a reflection of the fact that the Sun had the previous week switched its support to the Conservatives.

He said he had "never traded a policy" in return for media backing.
