How will Leveson affect the press?


Lord Justice Leveson will publish his report today.

During public hearings which lasted eight months he heard from nearly 500 witnesses and he received more than 6,000 pages of evidence.

Torin Douglas, the BBC's media correspondent, explained what the Leveson will report on other than press regulation, explaining that he "made it clear during the hearings that he was not at all happy with the behaviour of the press."

Speaking to Today presenter James Naughtie, Clive Coleman, the BBC's legal affairs correspondent, outlined what the suggested statutory legislation would mean.
