  • ℹ️ Description
As the former Sun and News of the World newspaper editor Rebekah Brooks is cleared in the phone hacking trial but Andy Coulson is found guilty, here are some of the revelations that you may have missed in the biggest political and media court case in recent history.

After three years of investigation into phone hacking, seven months of evidence, and days of deliberation by the jury, the biggest trial in recent political and media history has drawn to a close.

The jury heard tales of tabloid excess during the editorships of Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson.

While the former has been cleared of all charges, the latter has been found guilty of conspiracy to intercept communications [plus others if applicable] and faces jail.

While the trial featured allegations that reporters were routinely instructed to break the law in pursuit of exclusive stories - it also unearthed a decade worth of gossip about the inner workings of the tabloid press and the royal family.

Amongst other things, remind yourself why the Queen got "narked" with her royal protection officers, how Rebekah Brooks' PA managed to enrage Rupert Murdoch, and which defendant was incapable of operating an iPhone.
