Ian Burrell: How an email 'for Neville' became a turning point

The "for Neville" email was released to News International by lawyers representing Gordon Taylor, chief executive of the Professional Footballers' Association, who sued the company for damages in July 2007 after an earlier criminal case had heard that he was a victim of phone-hacking by the paper. That criminal case had led to the jailing of the paper's royal editor Clive Goodman in January 2007. In April 2008, James Murdoch – who had been put in charge of News International as the News Corp chief executive and chairman for Europe and Asia in December 2007 – authorised payment to Taylor, following consultation with the editor of the News of the World, Colin Myler, and the paper's general manager, Tom Crone.
