Sienna Miller, the actress, is to be paid £100,000 damages by the News of the World


Sienna Miller, the actress, is to be paid £100,000 damages by the News of the World after it admitted she had been a victim of phone hacking.

 Miss Miller, 28, settled her case against the newspaper and agreed to the sum being offered provided she is given full disclosure of “the extent of the wrongdoing” against her, the High Court was told.
The News of the World admitted “misuse of private information, breach of confidence, publication of articles derived from voicemail hacking and a course of conduct of harassment over a period of more than 12 months”, said Hugh Tomlinson QC, for Miss Miller.
He added: “In those circumstances, her primary concern is not how much money is awarded by way of compensation but to know exactly what the extent was of the hacking which took place.”
She also wants a statement in open court to be read out in public as a “form of vindication and apology”. Judgment is expected to be entered next Friday when the full details are worked out between the two sides.

Miss Miller had sought damages over 11 articles about her published during 2005 and 2006, which the News of the World admitted were based on information gleaned from intercepted voice mails.

 Her claim had been expected to be one of four test cases to be tried at the end of this year – the others being those of the interior designer Kelly Hoppen, the sports commentator Andy Gray and the sports agent Sky Andrew.
The Metropolitan Police is currently re-investigating the extent of phone hacking carried out by the private investigator Glenn Mulcaire, who was jailed in 2007 for intercepting the voicemails of members of the Royal household.
Up to 3,000 names of celebrities and public figures were found in notebooks seized from Mulcaire’s office, all of whom will eventually be contacted by the police.
A spokesman for News International, publisher of the News of the World, said: “We are pleased that we have managed to bring this case to a satisfactory conclusion.

“Several weeks ago we admitted liability in certain cases and offered a genuine and unreserved apology. We hope to resolve other cases swiftly.”
