Dowler family meet Cameron

Margaret Davis in London

The family of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler met British prime minister David Cameron yesterday and said they were "delighted" that a full, judge-led inquiry will be held into the phone-hacking scandal.

Speaking on behalf of Milly's parents, Bob and Sally, and sister Gemma in Downing Street, the Dowlers' lawyer Mark Lewis said: "The Dowler family are very grateful to the prime minister for another excellent meeting.

"At the start of this week the Dowler family wanted to have their voices listened to on behalf of them and on behalf of Milly and on behalf of all the other victims of unlawful activity by the press.

"The Dowlers are delighted that the prime minister has announced a full, judge-led inquiry, and they're particularly pleased that politicians have reacted so quickly in response to the outrage of the public in respect not only of Milly but all the victims of such unlawful practices by the press."

Yesterday's meeting was arranged by the 'Hacked Off' campaign, which is pushing for tough action on alleged phone hacking.
