Answered By: 
The Mayor

5,500 people are classed as potential victims, because their details appear in material possessed by Weeting. Of those 1,000 are classed as likely victims as there is additional evidence indicating an actual hack.

Operation Pinetree and Operation Golding (part of Op. Weeting investigating further allegations of phone hacking at NotW and Mirror Group newspapers) has identified 1,600 individuals classed as actual or intended victims of these operations. Further analysis of this data continues.
