Leveson: Conservative MP Jonathan Evans backs legislation

Conservative MP Jonathan Evans says he "does not share" Prime Minister David Cameron's concerns about Leveson report recommendations for media regulation.

The Cardiff North MP told Peter Johnson on Good Morning Wales that claims that backing a new regulatory body with law would be the "end of democracy as we know it" were "over played".

Mr Cameron said he had "serious concerns" over statutory regulation.

Lord Justice Leveson has called for tougher media self-regulation backed by legislation to uphold press standards.
