Rock star Bryan Adams told the Leveson Inquiry he had called the police after being stalked by a woman and her son at his home in Chelsea more than three years ago. He was then dismayed to see the story being reported a few days later in The Sun newspaper. Adams said:
"I was very annoyed that what I saw as a private issue was being reported without my knowledge or consent...I do not believe that there could be any other explanation than the fact that the source must have been someone related to my call to the police."
Christopher Jefferies told the Leveson inquiry that he believes his witness statement was leaked to the media by Avon and Somerset Police.
A former police officer has told the Leveson inquiry that she believes people at the News of the World were involved in an attempt to 'derail' a murder investigation.
Jacqui Hames said she believes 'there was some collusion between people at the News of the World and people suspected of committing the murder of Daniel Morgan.'
Her husband Chief Superintendent Dave Cook was a high profile detective on the investigation, he was put under surveillance by the newspaper she says.
When an explanation was sought from the News of the World, she says the then News International boss Rebekah Brooks told Scotland Yard that they had been investigating suspicions that Jacqui Hames was having an affair with her husband, and that the newspaper hadn't realised they were married.
This explanation was described by Jacqui Hames today as 'absolutely pathetic'.
Christopher Jefferies, the man wrongly accused of the murder of Joanna Yeates, has told the Leveson Inquiry into press standards that he believes the police gave reporters information from his witness statement, leading to a 'feverish' interest in him.
Former Crimewatch presenter Jacqui Hames has given evidence at the Leveson Inquiry claiming that phone calls were made in order to "obtain financial information".
The former detective and Crimewatch presenter Jacqui Hames alleged at the Leveson Inquiry there was "collusion between people at the News of the World and people suspected of committing the murder of [private investigator] Daniel Morgan".
Police failed to tell Liberal Democrat deputy leader Simon Hughes that Glenn Mulcaire had his address, home phone number, the Leveson Inquiry heard.
Scotland Yard detectives informed Mr Hughes in October 2006 that they had uncovered evidence the private investigator had hacked his mobile phone.
But it was May last year before police shared with Mr Hughes the extent of the information that Mulcaire held about him.
Mr Hughes strongly criticised Scotland Yard's failure to bring charges against anyone else despite evidence that "at least three" other senior News of the World journalists were involved in hacking his phone.
Referring to his original contact with police in 2006, he said: "What they didn't tell me was that Mr Mulcaire not only had that phone number but he had every other phone number, address, and other things.
"They did not tell me that he had, for example, the hotline in the office, which only a few people knew, my private phone number at home, which is private because four years before or something like it I had been a witness in a murder case and had had to have police protection."
He said the investigator's notebooks showed that the News of the World had tried to stand up stories about a man and a woman linked to him "based on a salacious assumption".
"They were trying to establish relationships between me and these people, neither of which were what they would have liked them to have been," he said.
Police failed to tell Liberal Democrat deputy leader Simon Hughes that private investigator Glenn Mulcaire had his address, home phone number and personal details about his friends, the Leveson Inquiry heard today.
Scotland Yard detectives informed Mr Hughes in October 2006 that they had uncovered evidence Mulcaire had hacked his mobile phone while working for the News of the World.
The officers told him other politicians had also been targeted by the investigator but were not willing to go public and give evidence at a trial. But it was only in May last year police showed Mr Hughes the extent of the information that Mulcaire held about him, the press standards inquiry heard.
The Leveson Inquiry into press standards resumes this morning .
First up is the Lib Dem deputy leader Simon Hughes, who received £45,000 compensation from the News of the World's publishers for hacking his phone.
