Twenty to sue Mirror over hacking

Twenty people have launched legal action over alleged phone-hacking against Mirror Group Newspapers, which publishes the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror.

A hearing at London's High Court heard they include former Doctor Who actor Christopher Ecclestone, reality TV star Peter Andre and the BBC's creative director Alan Yentob.

A further 10 individuals are expected to issue claims in the future.

A trial is expected in February next year.
