News International apologises over phone hacking scandal

The News of the World's owner has said sorry over the phone hacking scandal and is to set up a compensation fund.

News International says, in some cases, it will apologise and admit liability. The BBC understands it hopes to pay out less than £20m in total to victims including actress Sienna Miller.

A lawyer for some alleged victims said it was a "step in the right direction".
