     Tuesday 24th February:
    " Last month, the high court heard that News Group Newspapers had agreed – for the purposes of resolving hacking settlements with the likes of Jude Law and Ashley Cole – that "senior employees and directors" knew about phone hacking and sought to conceal by "destroying evidence of wrongdoing, which evidence included a very substantial number of emails" and the computers of three journalists which had been used when Mulcaire was employed under contract by the News of the World."
