By Samira Shackle

A dizzying number of celebrities, public figures, and ordinary people caught up in the crossfire were sucked into the phone-hacking scandal last year. And hacked phones have resulted in legal cases. Lots of them.

Indeed, in April last year, News International set up a £20m compensation scheme in an attempt to settle the claims before they reached the high court. Today, some of those settlements were announced.

Here is a full list of the payouts announced today (including those in the photo gallery above, and some others):

– Jude Law, actor: £130,000
– Sadie Frost, actress and former wife of Law: £50,000

– Ben Jackson, former assistant to Law: £40,000
