Jeremy Hunt 'confident' of vindication in BSkyB row

Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, has said he is sure the Leveson Inquiry into press standards will find that he handled News Corporation's planned takeover of BSkyB with "total integrity".

The Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Simon Hughes, has joined calls for an inquiry into whether emails sent by Mr Hunt's adviser to News Corp breached ministerial rules.

Speaking to reporters, Mr Hunt pledged to hand in all correspondence with his special adviser over the takeover bid to the Leveson Inquiry.
