Yesterday two of the families who had their phones hacked stated that the phone hacking stories had led to a suicide in their respective families.
There is of course no way of proving this 100 percent. But it does seem very plauseable.
The Leveson inquiry has heard from the parents of a schoolgirl murdered by a classmate in 1991 who claim press coverage of her death had contributed to their teenage son's suicide.
Margaret Watson said articles were ill-informed and inaccurate.
Former Blackburn footballer Garry Flitcroft claimed that he was persecuted by the press after he obtained an injunction preventing the Sunday People revealing details of an affair.
He said his children were teased and his father, who suffered from depression, stopped attending his games because of chanting from fans.
Flitcroft added that he believed that had contributed to his father's suicide several years later.
So I'm not sure if there is a direct link. But there is a link. Somewhere along the line the papers could have blood on their hands.
