London: An eclectic mix of celebrities, crime
victims and former police suspects will take part in a
judge-led inquiry into the state of Britain`s scandal-tarred
press.

Lord Justice Brian Leveson said today that Harry Potter
creator JK Rowling, actors Hugh Grant and Sienna Miller,
Formula One boss Max Mosley, the parents of missing girl
Madeleine McCann and murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler will
participate.

Leveson has been asked to examine the ethics of the
British media and to investigate improper conduct.

The group of around 46 people will give evidence on
alleged media intrusion into their private lives.

The inquiry was set up in response to the phone hacking
scandal in which journalists at News International are accused
of hacking into voice mails.
