Former News of the World Editor Andy Coulson has said he was "delighted" about Lord Burns' decision that he had no case to answer at a perjury trial in Edinburgh.
Speaking outside court Mr Coulson said:
I am obviously delighted by the judge's decision today. It was the right decision. I would like to thank him, I would like to thank the jury for their patience and I would like to thank my brilliant legal team.
This prosecution was always wrong. I didn't lie and the prosecution, in my view, was a gross waste of public money.
I am just delighted that after four pretty testing years that my family and myself have finally had a good day.
