Labour's deputy leader said Jeremy Hunt's behaviour was "absolutely not acceptable" and the Culture Secretary was "not fit" to remain in his position.

Speaking to the BBC the Shadow Culture Secretary Harriet Harman said Mr Hunt was "colluding with News Corp", an allegation which he denies.

"Clearly there was complete collusion between the secretary of state and his office and News Corp on a bid where he was supposed to be impartial, which is why he should not be in his job."
