Report of the UK Leveson inquiry into the conduct of the press published

"For the seventh time in less than 70 years, a report has been commissioned by the Government which has dealt with concerns about the press. It was sparked by public revulsion about a single action – the hacking of the mobile phone of a murdered teenager.

The report, in four volumes of around 500 pages each, is available for download.
