Leveson inquiry: Hacking victim John Tulloch backs press regulation


A survivor of the London bombings on 7 July 2005 has called for the British press to be independently regulated.

Professor John Tulloch, from Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, had his phone hacked by the News of the World in the wake of the terrorist attack.

He was on a train and sat opposite bomber Mohammad Sidique Khan when he detonated his device.

Khan, Shezhad Tanweer, Jermaine Lindsay and Hasib Hussain murdered 52 people when they set off bombs on London Tube trains and a bus.

The Leveson report into press standards will be published on Thursday.

BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas has been speaking to Prof Tulloch and said he was a bullied into an interview by the News Of The World, but also had his phone hacked.
