Four people accuse Mirror Group of phone hacking

Four people, including Sven-Goran Eriksson, are taking legal action against the owners of the Daily Mirror over alleged phone hacking.

The others include former Coronation Street actress Shobna Gulati, former nanny to the Beckhams Abbie Gibson and former footballer Garry Flitcroft.

Trinity Mirror, which owns Mirror Group, declined to comment.

In December 2011, Piers Morgan told the Leveson Inquiry that "not a single person has made any formal or legal complaint against the Daily Mirror for phone hacking".

Radio 5 live Breakfast spoke to the claimants' lawyer Mark Lewis.
