Michel: I did nothing 'inappropriate'

A lobbyist for Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation tells the Leveson Inquiry he did nothing ''inappropriate'' in contacting Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt's former special adviser.

A lobbyist for Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation has told the Leveson Inquiry he did nothing "inappropriate" in contacting Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt's former special adviser.

Fred Michel said he did not think it wrong to "put arguments or make representations" to Mr Hunt's team.

Adam Smith stood down after saying his emails with Mr Michel over the firm's bid to take over BSkyB went too far.

Mr Hunt has denied News Corp had any influence with his office.
