Lib Dem deputy leader Simon Hughes has told the Leveson Inquiry his bid to become party leader in 2006 was affected by media coverage.

He told the inquiry into media standards and ethics he had been contacted by the Sun who told him they had obtained his phonecall records.

He said subsequent press coverage affected his "political reputation and chance of winning the election".
