Andy Coulson wins costs appeal

Coulson, 44, who resigned in February 2007, sued NGN over a clause within a severance agreement. He went to court seeking a declaration that the company “must pay the professional costs and expenses properly incurred” by him “in defending allegations of criminal conduct”.
