Jeremy Hunt resists calls to quit over BSkyB emails

Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt is rejecting calls for him to resign over claims he privately supported attempts by News Corporation to take full control of BSkyB.

The calls come after emails given to the Leveson Inquiry which suggested a steady flow of information from the culture secretary's office to News Corp advisers during the bid.

News Corp chairman Rupert Murdoch will give evidence at the inquiry later.
