Leveson report: Maria Miller says report a 'dark moment' for press

The Leveson report marks a "dark moment in the history of the British press", the culture secretary has said during a six-hour debate by MPs on the report.

However, Maria Miller stressed the report "falls well short" of criticising the whole industry, calling free speech "a right, not a privilege".

Labour said the Leveson proposal was "ingenious" and should be implemented.
