Clegg: 'We will not miss a beat' over Coulson departure

Nick Clegg has said the government will not 'miss a beat' following the departure of the Downing Street's head of communications Andy Coulson.

Mr Coulson stepped down because he said the allegations about phone-hacking at the News of the World, when he was its editor, had become a distraction.

He has denied knowledge of the practice and Mr Clegg told Andrew Marr, he 'had no reason to disbelieve him'.
