Newspaper publisher Trinity Mirror is facing legal challenges over phone-hacking allegations for the first time, according to reports.
Former England football manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, former Beckham nanny Abbie Gibson, Coronation Street actress Shobna Gulati and ex-Blackburn Rovers captain Garry Flitcroft filed High Court claims alleging their voicemail messages were illegally accessed, the Financial Times (£) reported.
Their allegations relate to the Daily Mirror, the Sunday Mirror and The People newspapers, while Mr Eriksson's claim relates to the time Piers Morgan was editor of the Daily Mirror.
Mr Morgan has repeatedly denied claims he was involved in phone hacking, while Trinity Mirror told the FT, "We have no comment, we are unaware action has been taken at the High Court.”
