- Good morning, welcome back to our live coverage of the fallout from the phone hacking scandal. David Cameron has just left Downing Street and is making his way to the Commons. He's expected to make a 20 minute statement, followed by what we imagine will be lengthy questioning by MPs.

- Probably not, but the PM has cut short his trip to Africa and he now faces an intense grilling over his decision to hire Andy Coulson. uk.reuters.com
- Cameron will make his statement at 11:30am.
- More bad news for David Cameron this morning. According to a Reuters/Ipsos MORI poll, more Britons are unhappy with the way the PM is doing his job than at any point since he took office in May last year. uk.reuters.com
