Channel 4’s Dispatches programme has interviewed a new anonymous source who claims Downing Street communications chief Andy Coulson had knowledge of phone hacking when he was editor of the News of the World.
Channel 4 News has an excerpt of the interview here:
Tabloids, Tories and Telephone Hacking is being screened on Channel 4 tonight at 8pm. Hosted by Peter Oborne, the programme says that it “investigates the paper’s working relationship with the police and claims of undue influence together with claims of intimidation against politicians, and explores the broader links between News International and the current government”.
