Channel 4 News: Phone hacking claims made against new newspaper

Channel 4 News is reporting this afternoon that legal action is being taken against an unnamed newspaper, although said to not be the News of the World, for allegations of phone-hacking.

James Hewitt, the ex-lover of Princess Diana, and actress Koo Stark started legal action against the paper this week, their publicist Max Clifford told Channel 4 News.

Clifford did not identify the newspaper in question. This follows reports this week that Lord Prescott and three other individuals, including Labour MP Chris Bryant, who also allege that the News of the World hacked their phones, have again applied to the High Court for a judicial review into the police inquiry of the matter.
