David Cameron's former spin doctor Andy Coulson and ex-News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks are due to appear in court today to face charges linked to the investigation into phone hacking.
The pair are due at the Old Bailey with five other journalists from the now-defunct tabloid the News of the World, as well as private investigator Glenn Mulcaire.
Ex-managing editor Stuart Kuttner, former news editor Greg Miskiw, former head of news Ian Edmondson, ex-chief reporter Neville Thurlbeck and former reporter James Weatherup are also facing charges.
The seven former NotW staff face one general accusation of conspiracy to access voicemails, that prosecutors say could affect up to 600 victims, along with other charges related to specific people.
