Decision to end phone hacking probe 'could be challenged'

The decision to end the long-running inquiry into phone hacking could be challenged, a lawyer representing some of the victims has said.

Gerald Shamash, who represented former footballer Paul Gascoigne who was awarded £188,250 in relation to action against Mirror Group Newspapers, said it would be "right and proper" to review the decision.

Speaking to The Guardian he said: "Subject to client's instructions, we would want to have a review of the decision-making process.

"It's available, it's [a] quite right and proper process to go through and we would want it reviewed. No doubt a number of the other [law] firms would want to join on this."
