The parents and sister of murdered teenager Milly Dowler met British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg today to discuss the News of the World phone hacking scandal.



Her mother Sally, who was given false hope that she was alive when NOTW deleted messages to make room in the missing teenager’s inbox, said: “We just want all the party leaders to listen to what those of us who have experience this scandal first-hand have to say.”



The meeting came just 24-hours after Rupert Murdoch flew into London to meet his embattled New International chief executive Rebekah Brooks. He has given her his full support.

Rupert Murdoch's takeover of BSkyB appeared to be dead in the water last night after proof emerged that executives at his British newspaper empire mounted a cover-up of the full scale of alleged criminal wrongdoing at the 'News of the World'.
