Rupert Murdoch has been attacked by a man wielding what was thought to be a shaving foam pie, at a hearing by MPs.

His son James appeared shocked as the man carried out the attack.

Rupert Murdoch's wife, Wendi Deng, wearing a pink jacket, leaped to her husband's defence hitting out at the assailant, before the hearing was suspended.
