Cameron pledges probe into phone hack scandal

David Cameron has promised to set up a public inquiry into phone hacking at the News of the World.

The prime minister said claims that the voicemail of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler had been hacked, with some messages deleted, were "disgusting".

But he told MPs an inquiry could not take place until police investigations had been completed.

Labour leader Ed Miliband said Cameron was "out of touch" and an inquiry should be set up sooner.
