NOTW hacking staff revealed

BRITISH private detective Glenn Mulcaire has revealed the names of News of the World staff who instructed him to carry out phone hacking, it was confirmed yesterday.

The information was in a letter to comedian Steve Coogan’s lawyers in accordance with a court order.

Mulcaire had applied for permission to appeal against the order, which was made in February, but this was denied and he was compelled to pass over the details.

His solicitor Sarah Webb said she could not reveal who the NOTW employees were because of “confidentiality issues”.

Mulcaire was ordered to reveal who instructed him to access Coogan’s voicemails, and those of Max Clifford and model Elle Macpherson.
