Phone hacking jury hears David Blunkett voicemail

The jury in the trial of former News International staff accused of phone hacking has been played recordings of voicemail messages left by the former Labour Cabinet Minister David Blunkett.

The court heard that the News of the World's private investigator, Glenn Mulcaire, intercepted the messages left by Mr Blunkett on the mobile of a friend in 2005 when he was Work and Pensions Secretary.

Rebekah Brooks, Andy Coulson, and six others, deny all the charges.

Robin Brant reports.
