David Cameron brushes off Andy Coulson questions

The Prime Minister David Cameron brushed off reporters' questions about ex-Downing Street communications chief Andy Coulson as he arrived for a factory visit in Craigavon, Northern Ireland.

Earlier it was announced that Andy Coulson and ex-News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks were among five people who would face charges in connection with payments to police and public officials.

Mr Coulson, who was editor of the News of the World before moving to Downing Street, says he denies the allegations.
