Hacking row: Pressure mounts on News of the World

News International remains under pressure from public figures affected by the phone-hacking scandal after its apology and admission of liability.

The News of the World's owner admitted there were at least eight victims and has put aside £20m for compensation.

Lord Prescott, who says he was a hacking victim, wants parent company News Corp's proposed takeover of BSkyB delayed while police make inquiries.

News International's admission risks opening it up to more legal action.

Phil Lavelle reports.
