Tony Blair's evidence to the Leveson Inquiry was interrupted when a protester burst in and yelled "this man should be arrested for war crimes".

The man, who somehow managed to evade security, was swiftly removed from the court room after causing the disturbance and Lord Justice Leveson ordered an immediate inquiry into how he had got in.

He said: "I would like to find out how this gentleman managed to access the court through what's supposed to be a secure corridor and I'll have an investigation undertaken about that immediately."
