Rupert Murdoch 'often entered Downing St by back door'

Rupert Murdoch recalled entering Downing Street by the back door to meet David Cameron and celebrate the 2010 general election result with a cup of tea.

He was asked to use the back door to avoid photographers, and remembered meeting Gordon Brown - and also not going in through the front door.

He was being questioned by Labour MP Jim Sheridan at the Commons select committee, alongside his son James.
