The parliamentary select committee investigating phone-hacking released a slew of internal News International documents on Tuesday afternoon, leading rival news organisations to race through them in an attempt to turn up anything that might be newsworthy.
The documents provide fresh insight into how News International dealt with alleged phone hacking at the News of the World after allegations first surfaced a few years ago. Among other things, the documents cover conversations about a settlement with former Professional Footballers Association (PFA) boss Gordon Taylor.
The phone hacking scandal has been one of the biggest stories in the British media world for years. In July it was announced that the News of the World would close as a result of the allegations. It remains to be seen whether the documents released today shed any significant new light on how the phone hacking allegations were handled.
