Mail receives up to 400 pics of Pippa Middleton a day

Picture editor Paul Silva tells Leveson that the Duchess's sister does not get special treatment.

The Daily Mail receives between 300 and 400 pictures of Pippa Middleton a day, according to the paper's long-serving picture editor Paul Silva.

But Silva told the Leveson Inquiry this morning that the Mail does not use the pictures because "there's no reason to photograph her when she's out and about doing her own thing".
