Two former News of the World journalists have been charged with conspiring to hack phones, the Crown Prosecution Service has said.

The defunct newspaper's ex-deputy editor Neil Wallis and ex-features editor Jules Stenson are accused of conspiring to listen to voicemails between January 2003 and January 2007.

Both will appear before Westminster Magistrates' Court on 21 August.
