Abi Titmuss: 'Nobody believed my phone had been hacked'

Royals, celebrities and victims of crime were among those whose phones were hacked by the News of the World.

The paper was closed by its parent company, News International, in July 2011 after it emerged that it had instructed a private investigator to intercept - or "hack" - voicemails left on the mobile phone of murdered Surrey teenager Milly Dowler in 2002.

Former model Abi Titmuss settled her legal claims over phone hacking with the News of the World in 2011.

Speaking to the BBC's home affairs correspondent Tom Symonds, she described how one occasion she called her voicemail number only to receive a recorded message saying it was "currently in use".
