Murdochs settle more claims

Murdoch’s company previously paid millions of pounds in settlement to the family of murdered British teenager Milly Dowler.

The seven public figures whose claims have been settled include Princess Diana’s former lover James Hewitt, former Liberal Democrat MP Mark Oaten, TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson, Abi Titmuss, Calum Best, ex-MP Michelle Milburn and Paul Dadge, who helped survivors of the London bombings.

News International said it had agreed to pay “appropriate sums” to compensate them for the distress caused.

The settlement figures are expected to be in hundreds of thousands of pounds.
