Charlotte settles claim against NOTW

Charlotte Church

Charlotte Church has settled her phone-hacking damages claim against News of the World publisher News Group Newspapers, the High Court has heard.

The resolution of the action brought by 25-year-old singer and her parents, James and Maria, came just days before it was due to be tried at London's High Court. Mr Justice Vos was due to consider the claim that 33 articles in the now defunct Sunday newspaper were the product of hacking into voicemails and had a negative impact on the family's business and her mother's health.
