Ex-News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks and husband Charlie Brooks have been bailed till 22 June after appearing in court on charges linked to the phone hacking scandal.
Mrs Brooks was the first to face charges after a police investigation was launched in January last year.
The former editor of The Sun and the News Of The World newspapers faces three charges and Mr Brooks faces one charge for an alleged cover-up of evidence. It has been claimed that Mrs Brooks removed boxes of material from the News International archive and tried to hide documents and computers from police.
Mrs Brooks’ former personal assistant, Cheryl Carter; Mark Hanna, head of security at News International; Paul Edwards, Mrs Brooks’ chauffeur and security consultant Daryl Jorsling also face a single charge each for conspiring to pervert the course of justice.
