Ryan Giggs starts phone hacking action against News of the World

Ryan Giggs ‘starts phone hacking action’ against News of the World

The Manchester United midfielder has been at the centre of a media storm about injunctions

Footballer Ryan Giggs has launched legal action against the News of the World over claims his mobile phone was hacked, his lawyer has said.

The Met Police are investigating claims the paper hacked into the messages of celebrities between 2005 and 2006.

The Wales and Manchester United star was recently at the centre of a row over the use of injunctions to stop claims of an affair becoming public.

News International, which owns the paper, has declined to comment.

It comes as the company acknowledged former Sun and NotW editor Rebekah Brooks had been shown documents by police which proved her voicemail had been illegally intercepted.

The Met Police’s Operation Weeting is investigating claims that staff at News International’s News of the World newspaper had hacked into the phone messages of celebrities and other public figures from 2005 to 2006.


News of the World seems to be branding themselves as Wikileaks Celebrity version and By the was, Lawsuit should be the least of Ryan's worries
