Coulson found guilty of phone hacking
24th June 2014

The former Editor of the News of the World, Andy Coulson has been found guilty of phone hacking, while his ex-colleague at the paper Rebekah Brooks has been cleared of all charges.

Coulson who edited the paper between 2003 and 2007 then went on to be David Cameron's Director of Communications in Downing Street, before resigning during the furore about phone hacking in 2011.

For Mrs Brooks, who's husband Charlie was also cleared of one count of perverting the course of justice, the end of the 10 month trial also ends suspicion about her role in phone hacking, while she was Editor of the now defunct News of the World newspaper between 2000 and 2003.
