Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson are set to appear at the Old Bailey today to face charges related to the investigation into phone hacking.
The former News International chief and ex-No 10 communications director will be joined with five former News of the World journalists and private investigator Glenn Mulcaire.
Also facing charges are ex-managing director Stuart Kuttner, former news editor Greg Miskiw, former head of news Ian Edmondson, ex-chief reporter Neville Thurlbeck and former reporter James Weatherup.
All are facing a general charge of a conspiracy to illegally gain access into the voicemails of hundreds of people.
Rebekah Brooks, alongside husband Charlie, will also face a charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice after being accused of attempting to conceal information from the police’s investigation into phone hacking and corrupt payments to public officials.
