Record hacking 'uncommon' says NoW boss

30th November 2011

The former features editor of the News of the World has suggested to the Leveson Inquiry into press ethics that getting medical information from NHS staff is more common than going through medical records.

The issue came up when Paul McMullan made admissions about the methods he had used to obtain stories. At one point he also suggested there was a difference between accepting medical information and going through records. The issue came up at the inquiry last week, when actor Hugh Grant claimed that information from his medical records had been leaked.
