Rebekah Brooks denies phone hacking charges

Former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks has pleaded not guilty to charges related to phone hacking.

Several other former News of the World journalists who appeared at Southwark Crown Court also pleaded not guilty.

Revelations about phone hacking led to the closure of the News of the World in July 2011.

Mrs Brooks, 45, also denied conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office and to pervert the course of justice.

Tom Symonds reports from Southwark Crown Court.
