Roy Greenslade finds an old piece from the Daily Mail, in which Piers Morgan admits to listening in to a private voicemail from Paul McCartney:
“Stories soon emerged that the marriage was in trouble - at one stage I was played a tape of a message Paul had left for Heather on her mobile phone.
It was heartbreaking. The couple had clearly had a tiff, Heather had fled to India, and Paul was pleading with her to come back. He sounded lonely, miserable and desperate, and even sang We Can Work It Out into the answerphone.”
He also notes:
During Morgan’s NotW editorship, one of his journalists, Gary Jones, was named reporter of the year for, notably, revealing Princess Diana’s phone calls to a married man.
