Thanks PeterMac.

Well of course it was! I also heard (years ago) about 9/11 victims being hacked... so that comes as no surprise whatsoever.


I'm far more interested in finding out which bent coppers, sleazy politicians, and PR teams are involved with the press and media in creating and burying stories in order to keep the public ignorant of the facts!

It explains the kid gloves he used when interviewing the dynamic duo. They had a hold over him.

Ex-Mirror Journalist Makes New Hacking Claim

4:59am UK, Saturday July 23, 2011

A former journalist for the Daily Mirror has claimed the News Of The World was not the only British newspaper involved in phone hacking.

Daily mirror publisher Trinity Mirror has denied the claims


James Hipwell, 45, alleged the illegal practice was "endemic" at the Daily Mirror while he worked under the editorship of Piers Morgan between 1998 and 2000.

The 45-year-old claimed he saw show business reporters regularly intercept voicemail messages while he worked next to them on the paper's business section.

He told the Independent newspaper: "You know what people around you are doing.

"They would call a celebrity with one phone and when it was answered they would then hang up.


"By that stage the other phone would be into their [the celebrity's] voicemail and they would key in the code, 9999 or 0000. I saw that a lot."

Mr Hipwell said he would be willing to give evidence to the public inquiry into hacking ordered by David Cameron and headed by Lord Justice Brian Leveson.

He said the death of former News Of The World showbiz journalist Sean Hoare had been a "game-changer" in his decision to speak out.

Mr Hoare, who was found dead at his Hertfordshire home on Monday, blew the whistle on hacking at the now defunct News Of The World.

Mr Hipwell says Sean Hoare's death has prompted him to disclose 'the lies'


Mr Hipwell said: "He was a good bloke and I thought he was treated disgracefully. He is the only one who has had the balls to say that this was going on.

"I take the view he was right. I know he was flawed, but he was treated very badly and now he's dead. I'm sick of all the lies."

Trinity Mirror, the publisher of the Mirror, hit back at Mr Hipwell's claims saying in a statement: "Our journalists work within the criminal law and the Press Complaints Commission code of conduct."

Mr Hipwell was sacked from the Mirror in 2000 over the "City Slickers" scandal in which he was accused of buying shares before tipping them in the paper.

He was convicted of market manipulation and served 59 days in jail.

Tommy Sheridan's perjury trial is being investigated after hacking claims

Meanwhile, witnesses who gave evidence about phone hacking in the trial of Tommy Sheridan are to be investigated over allegations that they may have committed perjury.

Strathclyde Police is looking at whether certain witnesses lied to the courts in the former MSPs own perjury trial last year as part of a "full" investigation into phone hacking in Scotland.

Among the people who gave evidence were Andy Coulson, the former NOTW editor; Bob Bird, the then editor of the Scottish edition of the newspaper; and reporter Douglas Wight.

News International has confirmed it had been contacted by police in connection with the investigation.

Police said Hoare's death at his home in England was not considered to be suspicious, according to Britain's Press Association news agency.

Nor was Dr Kelly, Rudolf Hess, Lord Lucan, or anyone else.

Mr Hipwell was sacked from the Mirror in 2000 over the "City Slickers"
scandal in which he was accused of buying shares before tipping them in
the paper.

He was convicted of market manipulation and served 59 days in jail.

Unfortunately that will be used against him. People will conveniently say he has an axe to grind, as it is, before all else that is already highlighted.

Hopefully he retains black and white evidence of his claims.
Oh, I have no doubt that most tabloids used hacked materials or that they pay their source be it police or whoever for info they could use for reporting - the difficulty is to prove they did it illegally.
Who can produce the evidence that counts is the pertinent question.

To digress now to look at other tabloids would mean diluting concentration on NOTW which would only be welcomed by NI. Imo investigators should concentrate on the job on hand ie NI and its title and when this completed then move on to look at others, bit like spring cleaning bit by bit.

Am I correct in remembering that there were more senior figures who were similarly accused, but who were not prosecuted ?

EDITED to add
I just remembered. Piers Morgan !

""The abuse and the hate mail you would get was incredible," says Hipwell, with Bhoyrul throwing in his view that "all the readers were tossers. Piers told us that. In fact he said that most couldn't even read."
Along the way, they have some advice for Susie Jagger, the young financial hack from the Telegraph who broke the original story about Morgan's dealings..."

Just weeks after he was sacked as editor of the Daily Mirror, Piers Morgan has finally been formally cleared of any wrongdoing over the City Slickers share dealing scandal.

The Department of Trade and Industry confirmed today that it would not be taking any action following an investigation that has dragged on for more than four years.

1 Spot the difference.
2 Spot the similarity with the McCann shelving decision

Blood and cadaver alerts

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
