A jury will return to consider two remaining charges against former News of the World editor Andy Coulson after he was found guilty of conspiring to hack phones on Tuesday.

The ex-Number 10 director of communications is accused of conspiring with former royal editor Clive Goodman to commit misconduct in a public office by agreeing to pay police officers for two royal directories. They both deny the two charges.

Coulson, 46, who was forced to resign as Mr Cameron's director of communications over the scandal, faces up to two years in jail for hacking following the high-profile trial.

The Old Bailey jury of eight women and three men found him guilty of conspiring to hack phones, but cleared ex-News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks of all charges.
