Blogger summoned to Leveson Inquiry

Political blogger Paul "Guido Fawkes" staines has been summoned to appear at the Leveson Inquiry after Alistair Campbell's evidence was published online.

A statement issued by the Leveson Inquiry read: "Lord Justice Leveson was extremely concerned to hear that, on November 27 2011, a copy of the evidence that Mr Alastair Campbell intended to provide to the inquiry was published on the 'Guido Fawkes' website.

"The website asserts that this statement was obtained by 'legal means' but Lord Justice Leveson will be enquiring further into this claim and Mr Paul staines will be required to give evidence."

Mr staines states the material was obtained legally.
