Gordon Brown at Leveson: 'Every parent would do likewise'


NHS Fife has said it is "highly likely" a member of their staff spoke about the medical condition of Gordon Brown's son without authorisation.

The former prime minister has been giving evidence to the Leveson Inquiry into press standards.

Mr Brown denied giving permission to The Sun newspaper to publish a story about his son being diagnosed with cystic fibrosis in 2006.

BBC Scotland's David Porter says the health board has apologised to Mr and Mrs Brown.
