This live session will be chaired by Alexandra Agnew, Associate at Mishcon de Reya and will be held virtually via Zoom.
Leigh Nicol is a professional footballer who currently plays for Crystal Palace. In 2019, whilst playing for Charlton Athletic, her iCloud was hacked, and private content started to appear on adult websites. The incident caused so much distress that Leigh spiralled into depression, and even considered taking her own life.
Over the last two and a half years, Leigh has rebuilt herself, is back playing football, and back as the happy, smiling person that her friends knew and loved. Leigh will reflect on the traumatising phone hacking experience and her inspiring journey of recovery.
