News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks is likely to face new calls for her resignation today.

It follows more revelations about the apparent scale of phone hacking at the News of the World.

The parents of murdered schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman have also been contacted by officers on the hacking inquiry.

Assistant Editor and Media Editor at the London Independent Ian Burrell said the pressure "is mounting" on Ms Brooks.
