David Dimbleby was joined by the Employment Minister Chris Grayling, shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander and the veteran Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Shirley Williams.

The actor Hugh Grant also joined the panel alongside the broadcaster and columnist Jon Gaunt.

Actor Hugh Grant has told a BBC Question Time audience that he believes the closure of the News of The World, amid mounting pressure over phone hacking allegations, is a cynical management manoeuvre.

Mr Grant exposed the scandal when he recorded a conversation between himself and former features editor Paul McMullan, in which the journalist revealed details of phone hacking by the media.

Thanks to the BBC.
