Royal British Legion cuts ties with NoW over 'hacking'

The Royal British Legion (RBL) has cut ties with the News of the World as its campaigning partner amid claims the paper may have hacked into the mobile phones of bereaved military families.

It said it was also reviewing its advertising with the paper's owner, News International, which also publishes the Sun and The Times.

News International said it would be "appalled" if the claims were true.

RBL's Kevin Hart, told the BBC that "given the nature of the allegations, we feel we have no other option but to suspend the relationship".
