Labour MP Tom Watson will make further allegations against News Corporation today that will go beyond phone hacking.

He will make the allegations at the company’s Annual General Meeting today in Los Angeles. He is acting as the proxy for stock owned by the US labour organisation AFL-CIO.

The MP for West Bromwich-East will detail findings of “covert surveillance techniques” allegedly employed by News Corporation, which will “leave the company liable to civil liability but also huge reputational harm,” he said.

The AGM is the first time Rupert Murdoch will face ordinary shareholders since the Milly Dowler revelations came to light.
