  • @oliver_wright

Andy Coulson, the Government's former director of communications, has set himself up as a media consultant.

News of Mr Coulson's new career comes less than two months after he was forced to resign from Downing Street over the continuing allegations about the phone hacking at the News of the World, when he was editor.

His first client is One Young World – a NGO designed to promote leadership among young people which is supported by former UN secretary-general Kofi Annan.
