(AP) British Prime Minister David Cameron says talks over how to regulate the country's scandal-tainted press have broken down without agreement.

Politicians had hoped to come to a consensus as to what to do about the British media, which has been roiled by revelations of industrial-scale espionage, bribery, blackmail, and computer hacking at some of the nation's biggest titles.

In a hastily-organized press conference Thursday, the U.K. leader said he would press ahead with his own plan for self-regulation and that a vote would be held imminently.

It was not immediately clear whether Cameron's coalition partners, the Liberal Democrats, would give Cameron's plan the support it may need to pass.
