Rebekah Brooks statement

Ex-News International chief Rebekah Brooks speaks after her acquittal in the phone-hacking trial.

Royals, celebrities and victims of crime were among those whose phones were hacked by the News of the World.

The paper was closed by its parent company, News International, in July 2011 after it emerged that it had instructed a private investigator to intercept - or "hack" - voicemails left on the mobile phone of murdered Surrey teenager Milly Dowler in 2002.
