Hugh Grant: NoW closure 'cynical manoeuvre'

Help

Actor Hugh Grant has told a BBC Question Time audience that he believes the closure of the News of The World, amid mounting pressure over phone hacking allegations, is a cynical management manoeuvre.

Mr Grant exposed the scandal when he recorded a conversation between himself and former features editor Paul McMullan, in which the journalist revealed details of phone hacking by the media.
