5 March 2014 Last updated at 14:15 GMT

Rebekah Brooks has denied covering up the extent of phone hacking at the News of the World when she became chief executive of its parent company.

She told the phone-hacking trial she thought News International's behaviour between 2007 and her appointment to the role in 2009 had been "honourable".

She denies four charges including conspiracy to hack phones and to commit misconduct in public office.
