Phone hacking trial: Andy Coulson 'urged silence on hacking'

19 March 2014 Last updated at 13:44 GMT

Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson told a journalist arrested for phone hacking that he would get his job back if he "kept silent" about the extent of practice at the paper, the Old Bailey has heard.

Former royal editor Clive Goodman, who was jailed for hacking in 2007, said Mr Coulson had told him: "All you've got to do is say you were a lone wolf."

Both men deny the charges against them.
