Prince Harry court case latest: Coronation Street star who cast accused of being press ‘mole’ to give evidence today | UK News | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

Today we’ll hear the case of actor Michael Le Vell (real name Michael Turner).

Mr Le Vell, 58, has played Kevin Webster in Coronation Street since 1983.

His case revolves around 28 articles in MGN papers between 1991 and 2011.

David Sherborne, who is representing all the claimants, including Prince Harry, said in court documents Mr Le Vell was of “particular interest” to Mirror Group newspapers – because of his TV career and his 2011 arrest for suspected rape, for which he was later found not guilty.

He was also an informal “union rep” on the soap, which meant he was “privy to private information about his Coronation Street co-stars”, which he says made him even more of a target.

This resulted in cast members accusing him of being a “mole”, which he claims he was “absolutely devastated by”.

In court documents, Mr Sherborne writes: “Private information was appearing in newspapers, for which there was no legitimate explanation.”

He became “extremely paranoid” people close to him were leaking stories, which left him unable to go to his local pub, the lawyer adds.

Mr Le Vell says it is “likely” his voicemails were intercepted and listened to by Mirror Group journalists.

Last week we heard his former co-star Nikki Sanderson, who played Candice Stowe from 1999 to 2005, who alleges similar activity.

MGN admitted using private investigators to obtain stories about her – and her father’s four marriages, but denies any phone hacking.

Lawyers for MGN argue there isn’t enough evidence to support claims of phone hacking or unlawful information gathering in relation to Mr Le Vell.
