A High Court judge has given the go-ahead to phone-hacking damages claims against The Sun.

News Group Newspapers (NGN), which has previously settled a large number of cases brought against the now-defunct News of the World, has always said there was no hacking activity at its sister tabloid.

But on Thursday in London, Mr Justice Mann allowed the claims to proceed.
