Paul Dacre, the Daily Mail's editor in chief, on Wednesday launched a staunch defence of the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) as he addressed the latest seminar of the Leveson Inquiry, which was set up in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal.

In it Mr Dacre said that over-regulating the press would "put democracy itself in peril".

Comedian Steve Coogan and Louise Mensch MP, a member of the culture select committee, joined Jeremy Paxman to discuss whether he was right, whether press self-regulation works and whether the tabloids are a necessary evil.
