There is absolutely no chance of Rebekah and Charlie Brooks 'going away quietly'. Mrs Brooks did say to me a while ago "you live by the sword, you die by the sword".
I think she understands that a lot of people in the country will not be very sympathetic given her past as a major newspaper editor.
Having said that, I think the ante has been 'upped' significantly tonight. What isn't in doubt is that this is a very long investigation, sucking in an enormous amount of police officers that is costing a very great deal of money.
I think there is no doubt there is pressure on the police to make these convictions stick. If the couple are cleared, there is going to be a reckoning.
