Tom Crone - On today's menu: Embroiled Legal Manager.


As promised back in July the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee resumed hearings today with a new battery of allegations and counter-allegations over what James Murdoch knew and when did he know it.

Leaving off at the end of the last batch of hearings were questions surrounding the infamous "For Neville" email. They resumed today with former News Of The World Legal Manager Tom Crone stating emphatically that yes James Murdoch knew, since it was "the only way to settle the case", according to Crone.

So to get you up to speed on today's hearings, here is a recap of reports, starting with BBC Radio 4's Today Program, continuing with The World At One and finishing with PM (which just finished a few minutes ago, as of this posting - 10:15 am PDT).

This story continues galloping ahead with no intention of letting up or even stopping to take on water.

Stay tuned.
