FORMER News of the World assistant editor Greg Miskiw is returning to the UK from his current home in Palm Beach, Florida, it emerged last night.
The 61-year-old, who worked under David Cameron's former director of communications, Andy Coulson, was in charge of news at the Sunday tabloid which put out its final edition on 10 July.
He said: "I'm returning to the UK voluntarily.
"My solicitor has been talking to the police for some time now and so I have in effect been in touch with the police. They know where I am and they know I'm returning."
In an infamous quote describing News of the World journalism, he once said: "That is what we do - we go out and destroy other people's lives"
