News of the World journalists deleted voicemails from murdered teenager Milly Dowler's mobile phone, the Leveson Inquiry heard.


The Guardian journalist Nick Davies said private investigator Glenn Mulcaire was the "facilitator" of the hacking of the girl's phone. Mr Davies also said journalists wanting to publish private information about individuals should have to justify what they are writing before a public interest advisory body.

Also speaking yesterday, the former Daily Star journalist Richard Peppiatt claimed editorial decisions were "dictated more from the accounts and advertising departments than the newsroom floor" but said the paper "did not really use" private detectives.
