News Former correspondent of the News of the World and Sunday Mirror Dan Evans arrives at the Old Bailey

“Shock” and “anxiety” ran through the editorial floor of the News of the World the day two people were arrested in 2006 in connection with phone hacking. The description, from the former News International staff journalist Dan Evans, was told to the jury at the phone hacking trial.

David Cameron, Prime Minister: Mr Cameron was one of the last witnesses to the Leveson Inquiry and the judge went out of his way to accept one of his key assertions – that politicians had “got too close to the media”. Leveson said: “The problem is public perception... A way of conducting relationships with the media which leads to a situation in which a public inquiry is needed to take an objective, not to say forensic, look at the matter in order to reassure the public cannot be considered as satisfactory.”

David Cameron under new pressure to release Rebekah Brooks texts after leak

David Cameron will come under fresh pressure this week to reveal the content of "salacious" messages between him and Rebekah Brooks.

Editorial: Only total transparency will do, Prime Minister

If there is one thing the Prime Minister should learn from the latest revelations about his text message exchanges with Rebekah Brooks, it is that suspicions about their unpublished communications are not going to go away. However harmless, however innocent the content, the drip-drip of such missives into the public domain will be interpreted as evidence that there is more, and that somewhere there lurks damaging information that is being deliberately concealed.
