Legal action over phone hacking by The News of the World has now spilled over to the United States.

A British lawyer says he has three clients who plan to sue News Corporation there.

Mark Lewis has refused to name his clients, but says one is a well-known sportsperson.

News of the World was closed after the scale of phone hacking at the paper emerged.
