The British press is in a state of convulsion. A huge, government-commissioned inquiry into newspaper standards is underway. The reason? Allegations about phone hacking. And one of those at the centre of the maelstrom is Mark Lewis, the lawyer for many of those who say they are victims of phone hacking, including the family of a murdered schoolgirl. Mark Lewis says that he too has felt the wrath of the newspapers. But is there a danger that, in the end, a free and vibrant British press could be muzzled?
