Leveson Inquiry: Paul Dacre repeats hacking denials

The editor of the Daily Mail has again denied phone hacking was the source of a story in his newspaper about actor Hugh Grant.

He was giving evidence to the Leveson Inquiry for the second time in a week, after being recalled over the issue.

When asked if he could be "100% certain" the story was not based on information obtained from voice messages, he said: "I can be as confident as any editor... that phone hacking was not practised at the Mail on Sunday or the Daily Mail."
