Milly Dowler's parents angry at phone hacking

The mother of murdered school girl Milly Dowler has told the Leveson Inquiry into press standards how she did not sleep for three nights after she learned that a private detective working for the News of the World had hacked her daughter's phone.

Sally Dowler described how they were given false hope when messages were deleted from Milly's phone after she went missing in March 2002.

Nicholas Witchell reports.
