Leveson Inquiry: Grant accuses Mail on Sunday of hacking

Hugh Grant has told the Leveson Inquiry into media ethics that the Mail on Sunday (MoS) may have hacked his phone.

The actor said he could not think of any other way it could have got its story in 2007 about his conversations with a "plummy voiced" woman.

It is the first time he has linked a newspaper not owned by media tycoon Rupert Murdoch to the practice.

The MoS said it "utterly refutes" his claim, which it described as "smears".
