The editors of The Times and The Sun have been recalled to give further evidence next week to the Leveson Inquiry on press standards.

Press Gazette reports that it is understood that The Times editor James Harding will be asked about alleged email hacking at his paper.

The media magazine explained that Scotland Yard detectives are investigating claims that a Times journalist, named as Patrick Foster, accessed the email of Lancashire detective Richard Horton in 2009 in a bid to unmask him as the author of the anonymous NightJack blog.

The Sun’s editor, Dominic Mohan, has also been recalled to answer further questions next week.

Four current and former senior Sun journalists were arrested along with a serving Metropolitan Police officer over alleged police bribes at the weekend. All five men have been bailed.
