Court judges have allowed the names of the five defendants involved in the hacking inquiry to be reported today after they lost a bid to block their prosecution over alleged phone hacking.
The former News of the World staff, including Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson have denied the charges.
But three appeal court judges, led by Lord Chief Justice Lord Judge, ruled today:
Contrary to the submission on behalf of the appellants, the resulting situation is not lacking in legal certainty.
We can see no possible prejudice to the fairness of the forthcoming trial.
We must not be unrealistic - there can hardly be anyone in the country who does not know to whom this case applies.
