Heather Mills tells BBC that a Mirror Group journalist boasted of having hacked into her phone
LONDON (AP) ' Heather Mills is telling the BBC that a senior editorial figure with the Trinity Mirror group of newspapers has told her that her voicemail had been intercepted.
In a telephone interview with the BBC's "Newsnight" program Wednesday, the ex-wife of former Beatle Paul McCartney named the journalist who informed her of the hacking, but the BBC bleeped out the person's name.
The Mirror has come under increased scrutiny following revelations that the News of the World, published by rival News International, hacked into the phones of prominent figures.
Mills' U.S.-based lawyer did not immediately return an email seeking comment Wednesday.
The Mirror Group has consistently refused to answer questions about the past conduct of its journalists, saying only that its employees follow the law.
