Peston on Northern Rock coverage


The BBC business editor, Robert Peston, has told MPs he does not believe his reporting led to the collapse of Northern Rock.

Mr Peston broke the story of the bank asking for emergency funding from the government in September 2007.

He was one of five business journalists being questioned by the Treasury select committee on the role of the media in the financial crisis.

Nick Higham reports.
