Leveson 'desperate' to deliver change


The Leveson inquiry, which was set up after the News of the World closed following the phone hacking scandal, has been hearing evidence all week mostly about the importance of a free press.

BBC correspondent Peter Hunt has been at the hearings where there have been calls for the industry not to be over-regulated and claims that the tabloids operate in an ethical vacuum.

Peter Hunt says Lord Justice Leveson is "determined, possibly even desperate to deliver change" to the way the press is regulated in the UK.
