Prince Harry’s biographer, Angela Levin, has claimed that Piers Morgan knew about phone hacking at the newspaper he edited, the Daily Mirror. Morgan has denied the allegation, saying he has “never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, or published any stories based on the hacking of a phone.”
The allegation was made in an article published by the Daily Mail on Wednesday, in which Levin said that Morgan told her that “he knew about phone hacking and that it was ‘rife’ at the Daily Mirror.” She also said Morgan told her: “If you know the name of the person who is targeted, you can just type it into the archives and you will be able to see all their voicemails.”
The Daily Mirror has also denied the allegation, saying that “there is no credible evidence to support this claim.”
Morgan has previously been the subject of a phone hacking inquiry by the British Parliament, and he has denied all allegations of wrongdoing. In 2011, he was cleared of any involvement in the phone hacking scandal that engulfed News International.
