News of the World hacking row escalates

David Cameron has promised to set up a public inquiry into phone hacking at the News of the World.

The UK prime minister said claims that the voicemail of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler had been hacked, with some messages deleted, were "disgusting".

But he told MPs an inquiry could not take place until police investigations were concluded.

Rupert Murdoch, the owner of the News of the World, has broken his silence over fresh allegations of phone hacking at the paper calling them "deplorable and unacceptable".

Carole Walker reports.
