Press standards campaign group, launched in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal, to establish itself as a full-time operation
Hugh Grant was cast in a leading role at the Leveson inquiry into press standards. Now the actor is becoming director of a new not-for-profit company set up by the Hacked Off campaign for press reform.
Grant will help fund the Hacked Off Campaign and sit on its board of directors, according to documents filed at Companies House.
The Notting Hill and Love, Actually star has been the public face of the Hacked Off campaign since it launched at the height of the phone-hacking scandal in July 2011.
Hacked Off has been highly critical of tabloid newspapers under the microscope of the Leveson inquiry. The lobby group found itself in the crossfire in February when Grant and the Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre traded accusations before Lord Justice Leveson.
