JK Rowling on saving 'cage-bed' children and press regulation

Author JK Rowling has dismissed plans by newspapers to set up their own regulatory body, after editors opposed a cross-party charter to create a new watchdog.

Rowling gave evidence on her experiences with the media to the Leveson Inquiry and insists that "press self-regulation has failed us".

She spoke to Lizo Mzimba about the press, her charity Lumos, and her Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts.
