Allegations of phone tapping at Britain's best-selling Sunday newspaper were dismissed today by the industry's watchdog.
The Guardian sparked a political storm after claiming News Group Newspapers, which publishes the News of the World, paid out more than £1m to settle cases threatening to reveal evidence of telephone hacking.
But, after reviewing evidence, the Press Complaints Commission said there were no signs of tapping by journalists at the Sunday paper.
