Actor David Tennant has accepted undisclosed damages from the publishers of the now defunct News of the World over a claim of phone-hacking.

News Group Newspapers has settled Mr Tennant’s High Court claim and the damages are believed to be substantial.

Earlier this month four other TV stars settled claims with the publisher of The Sun and the News of the World.
