Royal charter: Press defiant over politicians' regulation plan

12 October 2013 Last updated at 18:48 BST

Labour has joined the government in urging newspapers to accept the latest proposals for press regulation, put forward by the three main political parties.

Independent self-regulation is to be brought in after recommendations by the Leveson Inquiry.

Shadow culture secretary Harriet Harman said newspapers had nothing to fear from the all-party draft charter.

The Society of Editors has warned that the proposed royal charter could threaten press freedom.
