Five defendants, including former News of the World (NOTW) editor Rebekah Brooks and former Government spin doctor Andy Coulson will not be able to take an appeal to the Supreme Court over the prosecution of alleged phone hacking charges, judges ruled today.
The five former NOTW staff lost a last-ditch bid to attempt to block their prosecution over the reported charges.
Lord Chief Justice Lord Judge said the defendants would only pay legal costs if they are convicted.
