Hacking: Crone accused of 'concealing crime'

Former News of the World legal manager Tom Crone has been accused of covering up phone hacking at the News of the World, during questioning by the Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee.

Labour MP Tom Watson told Mr Crone "you were desperate to ensure that it didn't become known that hacking was standard practice".

Mr Crone dismissed the accusations as "absolute nonsense".
