Comedian Jonnie Marbles Held After Murdoch Pie Attack During Hacking Hearings

Occasional comedian Jonnie Marbles has been arrested after a custard pie attack on Rupert Murdoch during a Commons select committee.

The 80-year-old media mogul was hit with a plate full of shaving foam while giving evidence to the media and culture committee.

Murdoch was protected by his wife Wendi and a female lawyer who leapt to his defence to protect her husband.
