Labour leader Ed Miliband is giving evidence to the Leveson Inquiry into press standards. He was one of the people who called for the inquiry to be established in a last year in the wake of the News of the World phone hacking scandal.

Miliband started his evidence by saying he recognised the important role the media plays in "holding politicians to account."
