The actress Sienna Miller is poised to become the latest litigant to 
join a growing queue of high-profile figures seeking damages from the 
publishers of the News of the World newspaper over the illegal hacking 
of voicemail messages.

It also emerged last night that Sean Hoare, the reporter whose testimony 
was central to The New York Times's article that reignited the 
phone-hacking controversy, has been interviewed by police under caution.

The favourite cover girl of magazine editors and the star of such films 
as Alfie and Layer Cake is understood to have discovered that her mobile 
phone was targeted by Glenn Mulcaire, a private investigator hired by 
the News of the World at a cost of =C2=A3100,000-a-year. Mulcaire was jailed 
for six months in January 2007 for phone hacking.

Mulcaire admitted hacking into the voicemail messages of aides to the 
royal family as well as several high-profile figures including Gordon 
Taylor, the chief executive of the Professional Footballers' Association 
and Max Clifford, the publicist. Both Mr Taylor and Mr Clifford have 
taken action against Rupert Murdoch's News Group, the publishers of the 
News of the World, and both claims were settled out of court for around 
=C2=A31m each.
