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 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.
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.”
