He added that Weaver, Wallace, Thomas and Scott "were all phone-hackers themselves" and said Morgan and Wallis were "so incompetent as to not to know the real source of scores of exclusives that they published, or they were complicit in the criminal conduct."

MGN admitted to unlawfully obtaining Grant's information.
