Salmond: 'Vindicated' by Leveson

The Scottish first minister has said he had been completely vindicated by the Leveson Report into press behaviour.

Lord Justice Leveson said Alex Salmond's contacts with Rupert Murdoch and his company were motivated by a desire to boost Scottish jobs.

But opposition leaders claimed Mr Salmond was "tainted" by his association with the Murdochs, and he was not fit to lead a cross-party search for a Scottish solution.

BBC Scotland's political editor Brian Taylor reports.
