The scandal engulfing Rupert Murdoch's newspaper empire has reached as far as Jeb 'Digger' Murdoch who sells the Big Issue outside Truro's M&S store.
Mr Murdoch, 25, says that other sellers in the area claim that he and his dog have been eavesdropping on their conversations to check out how many copies of the Big Issue they have sold.
'Me and Rover absolutely deny any wrong doing,' he told reporters, 'and I'm prepared to go in front of any parliamentary committee to prove it. They've got it in for me because of my name.'
But other Big Issue vendors said they still suspect Mr Murdoch and his dog of listening in on their conversations.
'Jeb is really ambitious and would like to go into television,' one anonymous Big Issue vendor said. 'And what with him being an Australian who's changed his nationality, you can't be too careful, can you?'
