    News detective hacks Duchess bank account

    THE Duchess of Cambridge had her bank details hacked by a private detective working for the Rupert Murdoch-owned News of the World tabloid newspaper, a British MP claimed in Parliament.
    Her account was accessed in 2005, when she was the girlfriend of Prince William, by Jonathan Rees, a private investigator who once worked for the newspaper, it was alleged.
    Other high-profile individuals said to have been targets for Mr Rees, who was cleared of murder earlier this year, include Tony Blair, Jack Straw, the Duke and Duchess of Kent and John Yates, the Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner who once headed the phone-hacking inquiry.
