Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson fail to get phone-hacking cases dropped

"Former News International boss and David Cameron's former spin doctor go to court of appeal in bid to halt prosecutions

Rebekah Brooks, the former chief executive of News International, and Andy Coulson, David Cameron's former spin doctor, have lost a last ditch attempt to get their prosecution over alleged phone hacking dropped.

They went to the court of appeal on Friday morning to seek to have the case against them dismissed on the grounds that the law did not extend to voicemails that had already been listened to.

Lord Judge, the lord chief justice, and two other judges, dismissed the appeal that been brought by Brooks, Coulson and three others – former News of the World news editor Ian Edmondson, former senior reporter James Weatherup and the paper's former managing editor Stuart Kuttner.

They are all due to stand trial in September for alleged phone hacking and all five pleaded not guilty to all charges earlier this month."
