Family of murdered Milly Dowler to press Cameron for urgent inquiry

The family of Milly Dowler will meet British Prime Minister David Cameron to demand an immediate public inquiry into the phone-hacking scandal, without waiting for the police investigation to be completed.

Sally Dowler, the murdered schoolgirl's mother, and Milly's sister Gemma will join other suspected victims of the 'News Of The World' for meetings with the three main party leaders.

Lawyers for the victims will pressure Mr Cameron and other politicians to apologise for their past close links with News International, the tabloid's parent company.

Mark Lewis, who represents the Dowlers, accused the coalition of allowing democracy to be replaced by "Murdochracy".

Others due to attend the meetings include Brian Paddick, the former senior Metropolitan Police officer; Gordon Taylor, the Professional Footballers' Association chief; and Nicola Phillips, Max Clifford's former assistant. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
