The mother and father of missing Madeleine McCann are revealing to an inquiry into media ethics how incessant press attention affected their family life.
Madeleine's abduction on a family holiday in Portugal and the suspicion surrounding Kate and Gerry McCann led to a barrage of highly personal media reports.
The inquiry heard earlier from a lawyer for phone-hacking victims, who claimed the illegal interception of voicemails is "much more widespread" than just the News Of The World (NOTW).
Mark Lewis said the practice was "too easy to do" for journalists.
He suggested reporters considered it no worse than driving at 35mph in a 30mph zone.
Mr Lewis said he felt sorry in a way for the NOTW for being the paper caught out hacking phones thanks to private detective Glenn Mulcaire keeping such detailed records.
"Because it was a much more widespread practice than just one newspaper, " he told the inquiry.
Mulcaire was jailed along with the News of the World's former royal editor Clive Goodman in January 2007 after they admitted intercepting voicemail messages left on phones belonging to royal aides.
Mr Lewis represents several people who had their phones hacked - including the parents of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler.
The lawyer negotiated a total of £3m from Rupert Murdoch and News International in compensation for the hacking of Milly's phone.
He also represented Gordon Taylor, boss of the Professional Footballers' Association, winning him a £425,000 settlement from News International as the first phone-hacking claimant.
Mr Lewis told the inquiry that NOTW journalists wrongly concluded Mr Taylor was having an affair after hacking his phone and misinterpreting a voicemail.
In recent weeks it has been revealed that Mr Lewis was followed by the NOTW and his ex-wife and daughter were put under surveillance by a private detective working for the paper.
The inquiry has also heard from the former wife of England football star Paul Gascoigne , Sheryl.
Their troubled relationship provided the tabloid press with a gold mine of highly personal stories.
Ms Gascoigne's told the inquiry she feels the responsibility falls on the people subject to intrusion by the media to prove their innocence.
