Rebekah Brooks is due in court today, charged with three charges of conspiring to pervert the course of justice.

The former News of the World Editor, who lives in Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, will appear along with her husband and four others who are all charged with one count of conspiring to pervert the course of justice.

All deny the charges, which are claimed to have taken place last July.

Rebekah Brooks and her racehorse trainer husband Charlie were charged last month, with offences which include conspiring to hide material from police.

The couple publicly attacked the charge, saying "we deplore this weak and unjust decision".
