Labour leader calls for Jeremy Hunt to resign over BSkyB bid

Labour has called for Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt to resign after Leveson Inquiry evidence appeared to show his support for News Corp's bid for BSkyB.

During evidence from James Murdoch, the inquiry discussed News Corp emails that appeared to show Mr Hunt had privately expressed support.

Prime Minister David Cameron said he had "full confidence" in the culture secretary.

However, Labour leader Ed Miliband said that Mr Hunt had acted as a "back channel" for the Murdochs, and must resign.
