Dowler family calls on PM to back down on 'no win, no fee' overhaul

The Dowler family has written to both Prime Minister David Cameron and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to highlight the impediments to justice the proposed reforms could bring, including the claim that without a 'no win no fee' agreement, they would not have been able to bring their case against News International for phone-hacking.
