Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson is suing his ex-employer after it stopped paying his legal fees in relation to the phone-hacking scandal.

His lawyers have filed papers at the High Court against News International subsidiary News Group Newspapers.

Mr Coulson was arrested in July in relation to phone-hacking allegations at the News of the World. He denies knowledge of the practice.
