Eight people charged over phone hacking scandal

Eight people, including Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson, will face a total of 19 charges relating to phone hacking, the Crown Prosecution Service has said.

The two ex-News of the World editors are to be charged in connection with the accessing of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler's phone messages.

They are among seven of the now-defunct paper's former staff facing charges of conspiring to intercept voicemails.

The CPS said the charges related to 600 alleged victims between 2000 and 2006.
