Leveson report: Newspapers reject press regulation plans
The newspaper industry has rejected a plan for press regulation agreed by the three main political parties in the wake of the Leveson Inquiry.
The newspapers opposed the idea of a regulator backed by a royal charter, and have revealed an alternative plan.
It is closely based on the draft charter agreed after the Leveson report into press standards - but without "state-sponsored regulation".
