Lord Justice Leveson today begins his inquiry into press ethics following the News of the World phone hacking scandal.
The Royal Courts of Justice in London will play host to the inquiry where 53 alleged victims will be given the opportunity to present their cases. Hugh Grant and Jemima Khan, pictured, have been outspoken campaigners for an inquiry into the scandal and it’s thought that the actor will be one of many high profile names giving evidence.
The first witnesses are expected to be called next week to appear before the six-strong panel advising Leveson.
The panel includes the director of Liberty, Shami Chakrabarti, ex-Channel 4 News editor Elinor Goodman, former Ofcom chair Lord David Currie, ex-Telegraph political editor George Jones, former Financial Times chair Sir David Bell and former police chief constable Sir Paul Scott-Lee.
