Milly Dowler’s parents have had to endure the suffering and trauma of losing their murdered daughter, have been unreasonably humiliated in Court and now have to face the outrageous truth that their daughter’s mobile phone was hacked into by journalists and her private messages deleted – leading the poor family to believe that she was still alive.

Compounded today by claims that the families of Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells, Madeline McCann as well as Sarah Payne may have been targeted as well.

July 7th is a grieving and sad time for the families of the London Bombings so to also discover that the News of the World journalists allegedly hacked into the voicemail of people who lost loved ones in the July 7, 2005 bombings is also very distressing.

As a Mum myself, I have simply no idea how these parents must be feeling today – but my heart goes out to them.
