Four years after Goodman and Mulcaire did their time for illegally listening to voicemail messages, the row over phone-hacking at the News of the World is rumbling on – if anything – with renewed vigour.
The story has been fuelled all along the way with some dogged reporting by The Guardian starting with Nick Davies’ July 2009 story revealing the secret £1m pay-off three News of the World phone-hacking targets. It was then given further impetus by a New York Times investigation published in September last year.
It’s become a pretty complicated story. Hopefully this News of the World phone-hacking interactive timeline of the main developments as covered by Press Gazette should make it a bit easier to follow.
