Detectives investigating phone hacking by the News of the World discovered personal details about Ulster MEP Jim Nicholson in a private investigator’s notebook, the News Letter can reveal.

The Ulster Unionist MEP appears to have been targeted by Glenn Mulcaire, the phone hacker who was jailed in 2007 for illegally intercepting voicemail messages, though it is unclear whether the hacking was for the newspaper or another organisation.

The News Letter has seen a photocopy of a page from Mulcaire’s notebook, dated 31/4/02 (sic), which was given to Mr Nicholson by the Metropolitan Police.
