BSkyB is to review the emails of some of its most prominent and successful journals in the wake of the hacking scandal, to ensure that there are no illegal newsgathering practices taking place within the organisation.

BSkyB announced that it has hired external lawyers to carry out the email checks that will go as far back at 2005, reports Reuters today.

"There has been no suggestion of any impropriety at Sky News. We remain committed to the highest standards," a spokesperson for the company commented.

The review at BSkyB has been announced on the same morning that the Dowler family, whose daughter Milly’s phone was hacked by a News of the World employed investigator, while she was reported missing, and was eventually discovered to have been murdered.

Bob and Sally Dowler, who are appearing at the Media Ethics Enquiry this morning, have said that the current review could be a watershed moment to implement ‘decent standards’ within media.
