MP's stolen phone accessed by The Sun

The Sun newspaper has apologised in the High Court for accessing private information on a stolen mobile phone belonging to a Labour MP.

Police told Siobhain McDonagh her text messages had been accessed after her phone was stolen in October 2010.

The Sun - which has not admitted the theft of the phone itself - will pay the MP "very substantial damages".

Clive Coleman reports.
