Leveson won't probe NI

Leveson won't probe NI
Lord Justice Leveson has said he will not cover exactly what went wrong at News International in detail in the first part of his inquiry.

In a 25-page ruling he says intends instead to focus on "the culture, practices and ethics of the press in general". He also states that does not want to prejudice any criminal proceedings.

It comes hours after Rupert Murdoch emailed staff at his UK newspapers, saying the business can grow "better and stronger" following the scandal. Mr Murdoch said yesterday's select committee report was "hard to read" but he was proud News Corp had worked to put things right.

In last night's email, Mr Murdoch also revealed that its Management and Standards Committee had found no evidence of illegal conduct at the Times and Sunday Times, apart from one previously-reported incident.

Meanwhile, the three senior News International executives found guilty of misleading the select committee - Tom Crone, Les Hinton and Colin Myler - could be summoned to apologise to Parliament.
