The protester who branded Tony Blair a "war criminal" during an outburst at the Leveson Inquiry has spoken for a second time to radio station LBC 97.3FM to describe how he got in to the court and what happened after he was removed by security:
He said, "it was surprisingly easy really" to get in to the back corridor behind the court, he said he did take five minutes beforehand to consider what would happen to him but, "my beef with Tony Blair is too great to miss the opportunity."
The protester who branded Tony Blair a "war criminal" during an outburst at the Leveson Inquiry had called the radio station LBC 97.3FM to voice his opinion less than two hours before. Hear his comments here:
The man arrested over bursting into the Leveson Inquiry to call Tony Blair a war criminal called a radio station just an hour and a half beforehand.
The man, who has told reporters his name is David Lawley-Wakelin, spoke on LBC 97.3 about his anger at the former Prime Minister and accused the British public of "turning a blind-eye."
Saying on air his name was Howard from Acton, he called Mr Blair a war criminal - the same angry claim he made in the Leveson Inquiry less than two hours later. It is an accusation the special envoy to the Middle East has strongly denied.
Tony Blair has completed his evidence at the Leveson Inquiry. The hearing will resume on Tuesday at 10am.
In evidence, Blair says he always felt press 'pushback' against his Government was because for the first time the party ran an "effective media operation".
Tony Blair tells the inquiry he couldn't abide briefing against others and if anyone was doing that he would come down on them like a ton of bricks.
Tony Blair says the personal attacks on his wife and children by, in particular the Mail Group, were "unnecessary and wrong".
He told the inquiry that if powerful people in some sections of the media decide they are to go after a person and it is "full-on, full-frontal, day in, day out and that is not journalism in my view. That's an abuse of power."
