The Chancellor has left the Royal Courts of Justice in London after completing his evidence at the Leveson Inquiry.
George Osborne tells the Leveson Inquiry that in a text message to Jeremy Hunt the word 'solution' refers to solving the issue of Vince Cable's 'war on Murdoch' remarks.
In response to Gordon Brown's statement to the Leveson Inquiry John Wilson, Chief Executive of NHS Fife said:
Gordon Brown said that after the Conservative Party gained the support of The Sun there was no point contacting the newspaper. Speaking to the Leveson Inquiry he said:
"I didn't return calls to News International. I didn't phone Mr [Rupert] Murdoch. I didn't talk to his son. I didn't text him or email him. I didn't contact him.
I'm surprised there was a story that I slammed the phone down on him and secondly there was a story from Mr Murdoch himself that I threatened him. This did not happen."
