Report: NOTW staff eye Coulson legal costs appeal win

Former News of the World employees are looking into whether News International could be forced to pay their legal fees after the newspaper's former editor Andy Coulson won an appeal on the issue, the Guardian reports.

On Wednesday, the court of appeal ruled that News International was liable to pay Mr Coulson's legal costs relating to alleged illegal activity while he was editor of the paper.

The case may become a precedent for other employees who are also facing charges.

The newspaper's former deputy editor Neil Wallis reportedly said he had told his lawyers to "urgently" look into the possibility of launching a challenge himself.
