7. Guardian update

4.58pm: The BBC's Laura Kuenssberg thinks it's a bandage on the young man's face Nick Robinson says it is shaving foam and the young man hit Rupert Murdoch with it.

4.57pm: The suspect looks like he has a substance like white paint on his face.

My colleague Jackie Ashley tells Twitter: "Wendi can throw quite a punch."

4.56pm: The BBC says the young man has been handcuffed. Sky showed the footage again it seemed to be an attack from Rupert Murdoch's left.

4.55pm: A young man in a checked shirt has been detained by police.

4.54pm: Someone has just tried to attack Rupert Murdoch. His wife Wendi seemed to slap the person.
