News UK, the UK newspaper arm of Rupert Murdoch's media empire, today apologised over the phone hacking scandal.
A statement said: “We said long ago, and repeat today, that wrongdoing occurred, and we apologised for it. We have been paying compensation to those affected and have cooperated with investigations.
"We made changes in the way we do business to help ensure wrongdoing like this does not occur again. And we are strong supporters of the Independent Press Standards Organisation that is expected to begin work this autumn, serving as a watchdog on the industry in the public interest.
"Out of respect for the fact that further legal proceedings will occur, we will have no further comment at this time.”
