Rupert Murdoch tells Britain: 'We are sorry'

Murdoch's apologies continue as adverts from the media tycoon appear throughout the weekend papers.

Rupert Murdoch followed up his personal apology to the family of Milly Dowler by placing signed full-page apology adverts in all Saturday's national newspapers.

On Friday the 80-year-old News Corp boss met the family of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler, whose phone-messages were allegedly hacked by a detective working for the News of the World in 2002. According to the Dowlers' lawyer Mark Lewis: "He apologised many times. I don't think anybody could have held their head in their hands so many times."
