The former editor of the Sunday Mirror, Paul Connew, said the royal charter on UK press regulation is unlikely to be supported by newspapers and magazines.

Under the royal charter, the Press Complaints Commission would be replaced by a new regulator with greater powers, and a watchdog - the recognition panel - which will check the regulator remains independent.

Mr Connew said: "At the end of the day, this could be a royal charter that no-one is signing up to. What happens next?"
