News of the World's ex-news editor Greg Miskiw was handed a six months jail sentence today for being complicit in industrial scale phone-hacking.
The 64-year old pleaded guilty to conspiring to hack phones last year.
The court was told how Mr Miskiw organised the newspaper's contract with private investigator Glenn Mulcaire, who was sentenced today to six months imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, plus 200 hours unpaid community work.
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.
