Phone-hacking trial: Brooks 'received death threats'

Rebekah Brooks has revealed she received death threats after it was reported that murdered Milly Dowler's mobile phone had been hacked.

The former News of the World editor also received a message of support from Tony Blair, the Old Bailey heard.

Mrs Brooks told the court she had felt "sick" when the Guardian published the story in July 2011.

The 45-year-old denies four charges including conspiracy to hack phones and to commit misconduct in public office.
