The spokesman for Rothley couple Kate and Gerry McCann has confirmed he has talked to officers investigating phone hacking by journalists.

Clarence Mitchell has previously spoken of his fear that he may have been a victim of hacking attempts during the height of the case involving their missing daughter Madeleine McCann. 

He said he has been interviewed by officers from the hacking inquiry Operation Weeting, and is due to be interviewed a second time in the near future.

Mr Mitchell discovered "suspicious" activity on his account from February and July 2008 after asking Vodafone to examine his records late last year.

"It appears that a person or persons unknown attempted to seek information about my number in relation to the McCann case," he said.

He said another call was made to Vodafone in July 2008 from someone claiming to have received a text message warning that a third party had been trying to access their voicemail.

"When I was made aware of these circumstances late last year I informed the Metropolitan Police and detectives from Operation Weeting swiftly interviewed me."

Metropolitan police officers are investigating Mr Mitchell's phone situation and he said he is due to speak to them again in the near future.

He said the McCanns' records were also probed, but there was no evidence of suspicious activity.

Mr Mitchell has not pointed the finger at any organisation, but said he would be "naive" not to think attempts to get information from his phone were linked to journalists.
