Celebrities, editors and phone-hacking victims arrived at the at the QEII Conference Centre, in central London to hear the final verdict from Lord Justice Leveson on his inquiry into press standards.

Kate McCann, the mother of missing Madeline, the parents of murdered Milly Dowler, former tabloid sting victim Max Mosley and actor Grant all made their way in to the building to hear the announcement and read the report.

Outside the conference centre, masked protesters, dressed as a gagged David Cameron and a sinister-looking Rupert Murdoch, held up signs saying "End the Murdoch Mafia."

Protesters held fake copies of the Leveson Report up to fake flames, to show the disregard they believe that media organisations will have for the inquiry.

    British actor Hugh Grant arrives to attend the press conference and publication of the Leveson report, based on a major inquiry set up after the phone-hacking scandal, in central London on November 29, 2012. Senior judge Brian Leveson said British press should have a new self-regulatory body underpinned by legislation which 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'.
