Former editor Andy Coulson "set up the payments to facilitate" phone hacking at the News of the World, it was claimed in court today by former royal editor Clive Goodman, who made the accusation against his old boss.
Goodman later described that he felt he was being "hung out to dry" after his arrest.
In a meeting with Coulson at a cafe in Wimbledon, south west London, he said his boss allegedly tried again to convince him to admit he was a "lone wolf" and had "gone off the reservation".
