The Rupert Murdoch Phone Hacking Scandal has been going on for years in the UK but in the summer of 2011 people suddenly started to take notice. One of the more heinous crimes was that reporters from the ‘News of the World’ Newspaper hacked into the phone of murder victim Milly Dowler and deleted messages hampering the police enquiry.  We will never know if her murderer, Levi Bellfield would have been arrested earlier without this hacking, we do know he remained free for several years afterwards and went on to kill other women. 
The scandal widened.
