Harry Redknapp trial: 'I don't fiddle taxes'


Harry Redknapp told police he had paid "fortunes in income tax" and did not "fiddle anybody", a court has heard.

The Tottenham Hotspur manager is accused of receiving untaxed payments from Milan Mandaric during their time at Portsmouth.

He said his family were "givers, not takers" and he would rather "give you £100,000 than nick a few quid off you".

Mr Mandaric and Mr Redknapp deny charges of cheating the public revenue.

The BBC's James Pearce reports from Southwark Crown Court.
