Nick Clegg: Jeremy Hunt 'should give evidence to Leveson'

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has said that the Leveson Inquiry is the best place for Jeremy Hunt to give evidence about his role in the BSkyB takeover bid.

The culture secretary has said he will hand over private emails with his special adviser Adam Smith about the takeover bid that would "vindicate" his position, insisting he had acted with "total integrity".

Labour and some Lib Dems want a separate probe into whether he breached the ministerial code of conduct.

Meanwhile, Labour leader Ed Miliband accused David Cameron of "organising a cover up".
