Watch: Journalists give evidence to Leveson inquiry

The inquiry set up in the wake of the News of the World hacking scandal continues to receive witness testimonies today.

THE LEVESON INQUIRY into media ethics is continuing at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

The inquiry – prompted by the phone hacking scandal at the News of the World – is hearing evidence from those whose lives have been affected by the actions of Britain’s newspapers, and from those who have worked in the industry.

So far it has heard evidence from journalists, lawyers, the parents of missing child Madeleine McCann, and celebrities including Hugh Grant, Charlotte Church and Sienna Miller – as well as journalists and editors including Dominic Mohan, Kelvin McKenzie and Paul McMullan.

Today it hears evidence from Ronald Zinc (Bing), Baroness Buscombe (former Chair of the PCC), Colin Crowell (Twitter), Neil Turner (The BPPA), James Harding (The Times), Dominic Mohan (The Sun) and Gary Morgan (Splash).
