Jeremy Hunt has said he will hand over all correspondence with his special adviser over the Sky takeover bid to the Leveson Inquiry amid pressure for a separate probe into his conduct.

The culture secretary said the details would "vindicate" his position that he had acted with "total integrity".

Several Lib Dems have urged a specific inquiry into whether Mr Hunt breached the ministerial code of conduct.

Downing Street has said there are no plans for this to happen.
