On 24 November 2011, the Leveson Inquiry at the Royal Courts of Justice heard evidence from:

• Sienna Miller, an actress who formally settled with the News of the World for £100,000 damages and costs after the paper admitted liability over the hacking of several of her phones

• Mark Thomson, a media lawyer

• Max Mosley, the former motorsports boss who has campaigned to force newspapers to warn people before exposing their private lives

The inquiry is into the culture, practice and ethics of the press.

Prime Minister David Cameron set up the inquiry after the News of the World admitted intercepting voicemail messages of prominent people to find stories.

It has two parts, the first of which will examine relations between the press, politicians and police, and the conduct of each. It will consider the extent to which the current regulatory regime has failed, and whether there has been a failure to act upon any previous warnings about media misconduct.

The second part will look at the extent of unlawful or improper conduct within News International and other media organisations. It will also examine the way in which any relevant police force investigated allegations relating to News International, and whether the police received corrupt payments or were otherwise complicit in misconduct.
