Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson has arrived at court - amid a media scrum - for sentencing.
The 46-year-old father-of-three was found guilty last week of conspiring to intercept voicemails at the now-defunct Sunday tabloid following an eight-month trial at the Old Bailey.
The former No. 10 adviser has been jailed for 18 months after being found guilty of plotting to hack phones while at the News of the World.
Andy Coulson is a strong, stoical and dignified character and these qualities will help him survive well in prison, Jonathan Aitken writes.
