Tulisa Contostavlos' drugs trial collapses and may bring more trouble for Rupert Murdoch

Former X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos launched a blistering attack on a Sunday newspaper today, after the drugs case against her collapsed. She condemned the Sun on Sunday for what she called "disgusting entrapment", and called on police to investigate its reporter.

The judgement again places Rupert Murdoch's tabloids in the spotlight

ITV News Correspondent Juliet Bremner reports

Speaking outside Southwark Crown Court, the singer and former X Factor judge called on the police and the Sun's publishers, News UK, to look into Mazher Mahmood's conduct.

The judge in the case said there were "strong grounds" to believe Mahmood had "lied" and given "entirely inconsistent" evidence.

Tulisa later took to Twitter to thank her supporters.
