Senior journalists at the Sun are preparing to launch a legal challenge to the News Corporation unit that disclosed confidential sources to the police, leading to the arrest of nine of the paper’s current and former staff this month.

Journalists at the News International red-top have approached the National Union of Journalists with a view to hiring the leading human rights lawyer, Geoffrey Robertson QC, to question the legality of parent company News Corp’s management and standards committee.

The NUJ has been contacted by more than a dozen journalists from the Sun with concerns about the protection of sources, it is understood.
