Social media and broadcast press will also be included in the public inquiry into UK press standards Prime Minister David Cameron has revealed.

The inquiry is now set to run beyond that of the relationship between the Metropolitan Police force and the media, and will be overseen by Lord Justice Leveson.

A panel of six will aid the enquiry, including figures from the world of politics, policing and the media, such as political editor for Channel 4 Elinor Goodman, George Jones, former Daily Telegraph political editor, former director of Ofcom David Currie, former chief of police Sir Paul Scott-Lee, liberty director Shami Chakrabarti and former chairman of the Financial Times Sir David Bell.

“The public want us to work together to sort this problem out because until we do so it will not be possible to get back to the issues we care about.”

During the announcement, Cameron also admitted that with ‘20-20 hindsight’ he would not have hired former editor of the News of the World Andy Coulson as his director of communications.
