Mr Goodman told the Old Bailey he had dozens of sources during his time as royal editor, only some of whom he paid.

Asked by his lawyer David Spens QC about the nature of his contacts, Goodman said: "Some worked for the Royal Family, some were friends of the Royal Family, indeed some were members of the Royal Family themselves."

The 56-year-old, of Addlestone, Surrey, who denies conspiring to commit misconduct in public office, was questioned in the witness box for a second day.
