A spokesman for the Hacked Off campaign for free and accountable media has responded to actor Hugh Grant's decision to settle phone-hacking claims against the News of the World. The spokesman said:
At the outset of his legal action, Hugh Grant announced that any damages would be going to Hacked Off to be spent on providing support for victims of phone hacking and other press abuse, especially those who don't have access to expensive lawyers.
One hundred per cent of the damages and more has gone directly from News International to Hacked Off, via Mr Grant's solicitors.
Mr Grant is one of a growing list of donors who are helping to ensure that the campaign is well-funded for the battle ahead, and can continue to represent people who would otherwise be without a voice in the debate.
