They've said sorry and offered compensation to some, but for News International the phone-hacking scandal isn't going away. Today many want to know why the apology didn't come sooner as police investigation continues to delve into the saga.

In a statement, they said News International has decided to approach some civil litigants with an unreserved apology and an admission of liability in cases meeting specific criteria. It’s now apparent that our previous inquiries failed to uncover important evidence and we acknowledge our actions then were not sufficiently robust.

Lawyers for News International are now dealing with the compensation scheme to settle justifiable claims, but there are caveats said it only covers cases from 2004 to 2006 and the paper says they'll fight any claim it believes lacks merit. It's understood that at least 8 people are now in line for a payment, included in those eight, are Tessie Jowell, Sienna Miller; Andy Gray and the assistants who worked for John Prescott and Max Clifford.

"News Internationals' announcement yesterday has now opened up the floodgate. They put their hands up, so apart from the 8 people named who will be looking to get vast sums of some money in compensation, loads of others will now come out. Because so many people I have spoken to believed their phones had been hacked, not by News International, many of them but by other newspapers."

Only this week, Ian Edmondson, the paper's former news editor, and Neville Thurlbeck ,his chief reporter, were arrested have now been released on police bail. As the team in Scotland Yard continue to sift again through thousands of documents, this latest admission raises questions about how far criminal charges could stretch.

"I think what it is important is for individuals who broke the law to be held to account if the police can prove that people have committed criminal offences, then we should be seeing more people go to prison."

John Prescott  is among those calling for the takeover of BSkyB by news internationals' parent group News Call to be halted until police have concluded their investigation. There is bound to be a split reaction to yesterday's apology, the cynical will question the timing and / motive, other victims may be slightly mellowed. Either way, it’s not the end of the story.
