Rebekah Brooks texted former prime minister Tony Blair that she was "feeling properly terrified" the day before a police interview, the Old Bailey heard.
The former News International chief engaged in a series of texts with Mr Blair in the days leading up to her arrest on July 17 2011.
At 7.34am on July 16, Brooks told the former prime minister she had an interview with police the next day.
She texted: "Feeling properly terrified! The police are behaving so badly."
Mr Blair replied: "Everyone panics in these situations" and later: "I'm no use on police stuff but call me after that because I may be some help on Commons."
ITV News' Political Editor Tom Bradby is with David Cameron as he addresses Israeli MPs in the Knesset:
'With me, you have a PM whose belief in Israel is unbreakable,' Cameron says.
'Delegitimising the State of Israel is wrong. It is abhorrent,' he says. 'And together we will defeat it.'
Cameron is being pretty trenchant here in his support for Israel.
One of Labour's biggest donors, John Mills, has said Ed Miliband's pledge to hold an EU referendum if there is a transfer of powers from Westminster to Brussels is "a step in the right direction".
However, Mr Mills has been clear that he would like Labour to promise an in/out referendum.
He said this morning: "I think we should recognise that the growth of the EU's influence over Britain in the past 40 years warrants a referendum regardless of future events."
Oscar Pistorius was "probably not wearing his prosthetic legs" when he fatally shot his girlfriend through a toilet door, a forensic analyst has told his murder trial.
The matter of whether Pistorius was on his stumps is critical to the case as it tests his assertions about exactly what happened on the night he killed Reeva Steenkamp in his bathroom on February 14, 2013.
The athlete has said he fearfully approached the bathroom on his stumps and shot Steenkamp by mistake, thinking she was an intruder.
According to his account, he then put on his prostheses and tried to kick down the locked toilet door, and battered it with a cricket bat to get to his girlfriend after realising what he had done.
JG Vermeulen, a forensic analyst, said he believed Pistoriuswas on his stumps when he fired through the toilet door, based on the angle of the bullet marks in the door, which was on display in the courtroom.
However, Mr Vermeulen said the bat was used to hit the door from a low position, and he knelt and swungPistorius's cricket bat at the door to demonstrate his point.

Former Lloyds TSB boss Sir Victor Blank told ITV News the 19p increase to the minimum wage is a "small step but very positive."
He said: "[It's] terrific that it's gone up and so it should. One of the biggest problems I think we have is the growing division between the levels of pay of senior executives and the average level of pay.
"If you look at the figures over the last 15 years, they've just grown apart massively and I think it's quite worrisome and I think it's quite wrong."

An alleged victim said that Max Clifford would come round to her house but her father was always there.
She said that he had a yellow jaguar and that her parents were delighted because people would see the car outside the house, a court heard. The woman said Clifford would talk to the parents about himself, the local area and playing squash with Tommy Steele.
She claimed that Clifford would take her out and remembered going to the Playboy Club one evening to "meet people", the jury heard.
She claimed they would drive around a lot, park up and he would say "he had to really get to know me...know me so well that I would do whatever he asked me", which was a pre cursor to the alleged abuse, Southwark Crown Court heard.
The woman claims she was indecently assaulted by Clifford on seven occasions.
She said: "I remember being repulsed, I remember thinking I can't wait to go home. I felt disgusting, I knew it was wrong but I was still really really frightened."
Clifford denies 11 counts of indecent assault against seven alleged victims.
