Hacking: Will John Prescott discuss Paul Gascoigne’s £188,250 compensation in his Daily Mirror column?
Former England footballer Paul Gascoigne has been awarded £188,250 in phone-hacking damages from Mirror Group Newspapers.
Others who had their privacy unlawfully invaded by the Mirror’s titles include: Sadie Frost (£260,000), Shane Richie (£155,000), Lucy Benjamin (£157,250) Shobna Gulati (£117,500), Alan Yentob (£85,000), Robert Ashworth (£201,250) and Lauren Alcorn (£72,500).
Meanwhile, hacking victim and Labour Party stalwart John Prescott continues to write for the Labour-supporting Mirror.
In case you missed it, this is what Prescott said when Rupert Murdoch’s titles were caught hacking:
The News of the World died. The Left cheered.
Prescott and his Mirror column live on.
