Nicholas Watt and Afua Hirsch report:

Scotland Yard and News International were tonight facing further parliamentary pressure over the News of the World phone hacking scandal as a Commons committee announced a fresh inquiry into the affair.

As police confirmed that Andy Coulson would be questioned following new allegations in the New York Times suggesting he knew about the illegal activity, the home affairs select committee said it would examine the law on phone hacking.

The committee is to question the Metropolitan police, including Assistant Commissioner John Yates, and possibly News International executives such as Rebekah Brooks.

There will be no evidence sessions in public.
