Police ordered to release files to Jemima Khan and Hugh Grant

Newspapers other than the News of the World may have been involved in hacking the phones of Hugh Grant and Jemima Khan, the High Court heard yesterday.

Lawyers for the two celebrities went to court to force the Metropolitan Police to release any documents that might contain evidence that the private investigator Glenn Mulcaire was intercepting their voicemails while he was working for News International.

Ordering the police to release the files, Mr Justice Vos said Mr Grant and Ms Khan were entitled to see any documentation that might have been intercepted by the private investigator and consequently used for articles in "the News of the World and other newspapers".

The judge also ordered the disclosure of former NOTW reporter Clive Goodman's notes used in his work as royal editor and gossip columnist.
