Nick Robinson describes the Rupert Murdoch 'attack'

Rupert Murdoch has been the subject of an 'attack' while giving evidence to a Select Committee in the phone-hacking row.

The BBC's Nick Robinson, who was in the room, said he saw Mr Murdoch "hit in the face with a plate of what I assume was shaving foam".

"I think the word greedy was shouted out... when I asked him what he said and why he'd done it, he said he was now the subject of a police investigation and therefore could not talk to me."
