The transcripts of the official inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the press. More…

We were provided with two suspect landline numbers, which we now understand belong to News International, and we checked to see which unique voicemail numbers of our entire customer base had been contacted by these landline numbers. That produced us a report to say that there were 177 unique voicemail numbers that had been dialled. However, that doesn't suggest that there's 177 victims. What we needed the police to do was put their evidence and their pieces of the jigsaw together to come back with and confirm exactly who the victims were on the Vodafone network, and we understand that that investigation has now taken place and from our liaison with the police, we understand on the Vodafone network there are 40 victims.
