Actors, victims participate in UK press inquiry



Actors, victims participate in UK press inquiry 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.
