Mirror editor ‘ordered hacks’

Have your say

Sunday Mirror editor Tina Weaver personally authorised hacking and blagging, political blogger Paul Staines has told the inquiry into press standards.

Mr Staines, who blogs under the name Guido Fawkes, told the Leveson Inquiry that Weaver was “somebody who two journalists have told me has personally authorised and told them to hack, blag and do all that kind of stuff”.

“She knows all the bad things that have gone on under her rule,” he added. “It’s ridiculous.”
