Reach Plc has put aside an extra £11m to settle historical phone hacking claims, which it believes will be more expensive than it previously thought.

This brings the amount set aside by the publisher, which owns newspapers including the Mirror, Express and Star, to £86.5m since 2014.

Yesterday, Sun owner News Group Newspapers revealed a £26.7m legal bill related to phone hacking.

How can you avoid becoming prey to one? #WorklifeIndia asks how you can protect your money in the digital age.
