Andy Coulson, the former editor of the News of the World, has been formally charged with three counts of perjury in a hearing in Scotland.

In a three-page indictment handed down at the high court in Glasgow, Coulson has been accused of lying about his knowledge of phone hacking at the now defunct Sunday tabloid, lying about his knowledge of the “culture” of hacking at the paper and lying about his knowledge of payments allegedly made to corrupt police officers while editor of the paper.
