Who Is the Hacking Supergrass?

Rumours have been flying around this week over the “hacking supergrass” reportedly involved in the Mirror arrests and news that the Screws might have hacked another 600 phones. Neil Wallis, who was arrested along with camera-friendly Dan Evans in the summer of 2011 before the CPS dropped the case, denies that it’s him:

“One of very few things that have hurt is an appalling lie that has floated around Fleet Street. Apparently it surfaced in Private Eye – that police/CPS only decided on No Further Action in my case because I had “helped with their inquiries” into colleagues. That could not – literally, physically – be further from the truth. As any crime reporter who still has a police contact talking to them can find out after 30 years, I’m inured to bitchiness of Fleet Street, but that’s a lie that’s beyond the pale.”
