Hugh Grant settles claim over hacking

Phone-hacking victim Hugh Grant (pictured) has accepted a "substantial sum" after settling his legal claim against the 'News of the World' (NOTW), his solicitor said.

The actor will donate the money he receives from News Group Newspapers to the Hacked Off campaign for a free and accountable media, said his solicitor Mark Thomson.

" Hugh Grant has today settled his claims for damages and other legal remedies arising out of the unlawful activities of News of the World journalists and others over a number of years," he said in a statement. "News Group Newspapers have agreed to pay him a substantial sum by way of damages."
