Former MP George Galloway 'offered payout over hacking'

Former MP George Galloway has told the BBC's Politics Show he is being offered "substantial sums of money" by the News of the World after his phone was allegedly hacked.

He said police told him they had evidence he was targeted by a private investigator working for the paper who was jailed for hacking in 2007.

Mr Galloway is now taking legal action for breach of privacy.
