Harry Redknapp evaded tax on bungs, court hears

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp received $295,000 (£190,000 at current exchange rate) which he had no intention of declaring for tax purposes, a court has heard.

Mr Redknapp was paid the "bungs or offshore bonuses" by former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric while he was manager at the club, it was claimed.

Jurors were told secret payments were made to Mr Redknapp's Monaco bank account in the name of his dog.

Mr Mandaric and Mr Redknapp deny charges of cheating the public revenue, as James Pearce reports.
