Publicist Max Clifford is starting a legal action against the News of the World to uncover any role its journalists may have played in intercepting messages left on his mobile phone, the Guardian reports today.
It says: "He has hired the same legal team who successfully won more than £1m from the paper for Gordon Taylor, the chief executive of the Professional Footballers Association, and two other figures from the world of football.
"Clifford, like Taylor, is one of five people named in charges against Glenn Mulcaire, a private investigator working for the News of the World who was jailed with the paper's royal reporter, Clive Goodman, in January 2007."
