London: Hollywood actress Sienna Miller’s stepmother has been awarded with 60,000 pounds for damages after Rupert Murdoch’s media empire admitted hacking her phone.

The parties had agreed to settle their differences and an injunction was granted against further hacking, the Daily Express reported.
