Sara Payne 'on phone hack list'

The mother of the murdered schoolgirl Sarah Payne has been told by police her phone details were on a list of contact numbers held by private investigator Glenn Mulcaire.

A spokesman for the Phoenix charity set up by Sara Payne to campaign to help parents gain information about convicted paedophiles, said she was devastated by the reports.

Mrs Brooks has issued a statement denying any knowledge of the claims. She said "These allegations are abhorrent and particularly upsetting as Sara Payne is a dear friend".
