Nobody has done more to bring the truth about phone hacking at the News of the World into the open than West Midlands MP Tom Watson.
His battle against media mogul Rupert Murdoch's empire began in 2006 - when he helped to force Tony Blair out of office.
Mr Watson (Lab West Bromwich East) quit his job as a Government Minister and signed a letter demanding that Mr Blair leave Downing Street.
He feared that the former Prime Minister was determined to cling on to power, despite his growing unpopularity. And working with Labour colleagues such as Khalid Mahmood (Lab Perry Barr) and Sion Simon, the former MP for Erdington, he succeeded in forcing Mr Blair to promise to quit within 12 months.
