High court have finally ordered the Metropolitan police to hand over phone hacking information to Hugh Grant and Jemima Khan

Hugh Grant and Jemima Khan have won the right to view evidence that their voicemail messages were hacked, after a high court judge forced the Metropolitan police to hand over the information.

Both Grant and Khan had been previously contacted by police with details to suggest that their phone messages had been intercepted by private investigator Glenn Mulcaire.

Mr Justice Vos has now told the court it is ‘expedient and proper’ that the information in connection with the hacking incident should now be disclosed to the pair.

The high court has also decreed that former News of the World reporter Clive Goodman’s notes, pertaining to his work as royal editor at the tabloid as well as his Blackadder gossip column, should also be revealed.

Goodman has already once been found guilty of intercepting phone message and was sentenced to four months in jail four years ago. Mulcaire, now a suspect in the phone hacking scandal, also pleaded guilty then to the same charge and spent six months behind bars.

Grant and Khan will now be able to view all documentation relating to the phone hacking case. According to information heard in the high court yesterday, this evidence may involve other newspapers other than just the News of the World. It is believed the messages illegally procured by Mulcaire were used in other papers, which are yet to be disclosed.
