Following the settling of Heather Mills’ phone-hacking case against the News of the World for a ‘substantial’ sum, Professor Steve Barnett reflected on the apology from News Group Newspapers to her and her sister and questioned how many more settlements will be made in coming months and years.

He said: “There are very large sums of money being paid out by News Group. They are absolutely desperate to make sure that these cases do not come to open court where there are executives who might be held to account.”
