Heather Mills: I was told my phone was hacked
Question of the Day
In an interview with the BBC’s “Newsnight” program, the ex-wife of former Beatle Paul McCartney claimed that she was called several years ago by a senior editorial figure with the Mirror who quoted _ word-for-word _ the phone messages left by McCartney on her answering machine.
“And I said: `Why would you know this?’ And he started quoted verbatim the messages from my machine,” she said.
Mills added that when she accused the journalist of hacking into her phone, he laughed and admitted that the conversations had indeed been lifted from her voice messages. When she threatened the journalist with legal action he promised not to write a story based on the intercepts, she said.
Messages left for Mills on a number associated with her website were not immediately returned.
Trinity Mirror PLC has consistently refused to answer questions about the past conduct of its journalists, saying only that its employees follow the law.
The publisher _ which puts out Britain’s left-leaning Daily Mirror and its sister-paper, the Sunday Mirror _ has come under increased scrutiny following revelations that the now-defunct News of the World tabloid of its rival News International eavesdropped on a host of prominent figures. Particular attention has been focused on the Daily Mirror’s former editor, Piers Morgan, who has long maintained that phone hacking was widespread across the British newspaper industry and that he was well-aware of the practice.
Morgan has denied that he himself hacked into phones or that he knowingly put out stories based on hacked conversations.
The BBC did say, however, that the journalist was not Morgan.
