Goodman: I told Coulson of plan to monitor phones

Former News of the World royal editor Clive Goodman has told the hacking trial that he told former editor Andy Coulson in 2005 of a plan with private investigator Glenn Mulcaire to monitor the phones of three royal contacts.

Goodman said Mulcaire was paid through a special managerial budget, separate from the news editors' budget.

"I didn't set up the account," he told the court, "that was done by Andy Coulson."

Gooman said he understood "monitoring" to mean be contacting security.
