Paul Gascoigne's solicitor has said his client is "delighted and relieved" by the ruling in today's hacking trial.

However, he was said to be "frustrated" that he wasn't cross-examined "so that he could explain in detail the awful impact the hacking of his phone has had upon him, his family and close friends, his health and general well-being".

Mr Gascoigne says that he now wishes to put the matter behind him.

Damages will be awarded to the victims of phone-hacking by the Mirror Group by a High Court judge today.

Celebrities are due in court to hear Mr Justice Mann's ruling on the amount of money to be awarded, a decision which will shape the course of forthcoming cases.

Personalities like ex-footballer Paul Gascoigne, TV executive Alan Yentob, actress Sadie Frost, soap stars Shane Richie, Shobna Gulati and Lucy Taggart gave evidence during a three-week hearing in March, alongside the partners of stars like Rio Ferdinand and Tracy Shaw.

Ebay users struggling to change passwords after hack

Since our report last night many eBay users have contacted me to say they have been unable to change their passwords - they are finding the eBay system is overwhelmed.

This morning I put this issue to eBay who tells me:

"We know that customers are concerned, and want us to fix this issue straight away, and we are working hard to do just that.

Our first priority is and always has been to protect our user’s information and ensure we correctly deal with the technical challenges such a situation brings, and that is why as a first step we have requested all users change their passwords.

Other steps, including email notification, will follow and we will ensure all eBay users have changed their passwords over the coming days."
