Watch: Piers Morgan statement in full as former Mirror editor launches scathing attack on Prince Harry

Piers Morgan launched a scathing attack on Prince Harry after the Duke of Sussex won damages of £140,600 against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) over the phone hacking scandal.

The judge ruled at the High Court on Friday (15 December) that Mr Morgan knew about and was involved in phone hacking when he was editor of the Daily Mirror.

Mr Morgan said in a statement on Friday afternoon that he never hacked a phone and never told anyone to do so, before launching scathing attacks on Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and royal author Omid Scobie.
