In yet another twist in the phone hacking scandal, a small number of journalists working for Trinity Mirror's Sunday titles have been told that they may have been among the victims.

The Guardian reveals that their names appear in the notebooks of private investigator, Glenn Mulcaire, who was employed by the News of the World.

It reports that Lee Harpin, head of news at The People, is among three newsdesk executives at both that newspaper and the Sunday Mirror, who have been told by the Metropolitan police that their details appear in the notebooks.

The Guardian reveals: “Trinity Mirror – the owner of The People and Sunday Mirror – has long suspected that its employees were targeted given the intense rivalry that exists in the Sunday redtop market.

“But it is the first time the company has learned that any of its journalists or other executives may have been victims.”

Trinity Mirror is quoted as declining to comment.
