Rebekah Brooks, former editor of Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World newspaper, told a London court today she knew nothing about the 2002 hacking of the mobile phone of a murdered schoolgirl and spoke of her “horror” it had occurred.

Ms Brooks (45) who later became chief executive of the British newspaper arm of News Corp, also said she did not know phone-hacking was illegal while she was the paper’s editor.
