A tougher form of self-regulation backed by legislation should be introduced to uphold press standards, the Leveson report has recommended.

Lord Justice Leveson said the press had “wreaked havoc in the lives of innocent people” for many decades.

He said the proposals in his reporter will protect the rights of victims and people bringing complaints.

He criticised the relationship between politicians and press over the last two decades, which had been “damaging”.

Prime Minister David Cameron set up the Leveson Inquiry last July after it emerged journalists working for the Sunday tabloid the News of the World had hacked the mobile phone of murdered Surrey schoolgirl Milly Dowler. The paper was subsequently shut down by its owners News International.

Lord Justice Leveson’s inquiry ran for eight months from November 2011 and took evidence from politicians, press and victims of media intrusion.

An arbitration system to allow people to seek redress without having to go to court should be created, he says.

The report says legislation would provide “an independent process to recognise the new self-regulatory body and reassure the public that the basic requirements of independence and effectiveness were met”.

He said the press had ignored its own code of conduct and in the last 10 years.

There had been a “recklessness in prioritising sensational stories”, irrespective of the harm that may be caused, he said.

He also said politicians of all parties had developed “too close a relationship with the press in a way which has not been in the public interest”.

A Downing Street spokeswoman confirmed Mr Cameron would be making a Commons statement in his role as prime minister, while Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg is to make his own statement to MPs, having reportedly failing to agree a united government response on press regulation.

But Liberal Democrat aides say Mr Clegg’s decision does not represent “a massive split or disagreement” within the coalition.

The prime minister’s statement will be directly followed by a response from Labour leader Ed Miliband, who received his own copy of the Leveson report in the morning.

MPs will then have a chance to debate the PM’s statement before Mr Clegg addresses them and Labour’s deputy leader and shadow culture secretary, Harriet Harman, will then respond to the DPM.
