The Leveson Inquiry into the British media has seen a minefield of accusations emerge over the past 48 hours as the British public has heard for the first time from victims at the centre of the News of the World phone hacking scandal, including Hugh Grant on bullying, a supermodel's advisor accused of alcoholism, comedian Steve Coogan dishing it out to the tabloids, a former English footballer flying in, studs up, at the press and of course, the Dowler family.

The Leveson Inquiry, commissioned by UK Prime Minister David Cameron, has been authorised to investigate the specific claims surrounding the News of the World phone hacking scandal and to take a wider look at the behaviour of the English media.
