Sienna Miller has sensationally claimed her emails were hacked into on behalf of journalists.
The British actress was called to give evidence to the Leveson Inquiry into press standards, which was set up after the News of the World phone-hacking scandal erupted earlier this year.

She is one of the most high-profile victims of the controversy and in May she accepted $160,000 in damages after editors at the newspaper accepted responsibility for invading her privacy.

And during her testimony to the committee in London on Thursday, Miller revealed her email password was discovered in the notes of a private investigator working for the tabloid – and that her messages had been hacked into in 2008.

The Alfie actress said police showed her a bundle of notes seized from investigator Glenn Mulcaire’s home during a raid in 2006, and she was stunned to discover a host of personal details, including passwords to her cell phone answering machine and her email account.

She told the hearing, “My password for my email that was later used to hack my email in 2008 was on these notes.”

Miller also revealed her friends and family had been targeted by Mulcaire, adding: “I felt terrible. People who had never done anything remotely public had been under constant surveillance by this man.”
