Ed Miliband: Milly phone hacking claims 'a stain on journalism'

Labour leader Ed Miliband has said claims that the phone of the murdered schoolgirl, Milly Dowler, was hacked after she went missing in 2002, are ''a stain on the character of British journalism''.

Milly Dowler's parents are suing the News of the World over the allegations, which David Cameron has described as "appalling."

The Labour leader, Ed Miliband, is calling for a public inquiry into the issue of phone hacking.
