Royal British Legion suspends NoW ties over 'hacking'

The Royal British Legion (RBL) has cut ties with the News of the World as its campaigning partner amid claims the paper may have hacked into the mobile phones of bereaved military families.

The forces charity said it was "shocked to the core" by the allegations.

It said it was also reviewing its advertising with the paper's owner, News International, which also publishes the Sun and The Times.

News International said it would be "appalled" if the claims were true.
