Norfolk MP finishes giving evidence to Leveson Inquiry

Business minister and Liberal Democrat MP Norman Lamb has finished giving evidence at a hearing of the Leveson Inquiry into press ethics.

North Norfolk MP Mr Lamb went to the inquiry to explain events around alleged threats that were made to the Lib Dems by News international in 2010.

At the time the Rupert Murdoch owned company was attempting to takeover BSkyB and Lib Dem business secretary Vince Cable was in charge of approving the deal.

Mr Lamb recounted two meetings he had with a News International lobbyist called Fred Michel. The second meeting on October 27 2010 was the one in which Mr Lamb claimed a threat was made. Mr Michel denies making any threat.
