Film star Jude Law told Britain's phone-hacking trial on Monday that reporters and photographers used to hound him and that they even appeared at events he had organized secretly for his children. "I became aware I was turning up at places having arranged to go there secretly and the media would already be there," said Law, who is currently appearing on stage in London's West End in a production of Shakespeare's "Henry V".

Law, 41, is the most high-profile figure to give evidence for the prosecution at the trial of two former Rupert Murdoch editors on charges of phone-hacking, which began at the end of October last year and is due to last until May.
