A JURY at London’s Old Bailey unanimously found Andy Coulson, the former spin doctor of British Prime Minister David Cameron, guilty of conspiring to intercept communications.

Following the verdict, Mr Cameron said: “I take full responsibility for employing Andy Coulson. I did so on the basis of undertakings I was given by him about phone hacking and those turned out not to be the case.

“I always said that if they turned out to be wrong, I would make a full and frank apology and I do that today.

“I am extremely sorry that I employed him. It was the wrong decision and I am very clear about that.”
