Hacking probes: What happens next?
What happens now? The conviction of Andy Coulson - and acquittal of Rebekah Brooks and others - is by no means the end of the road for the investigations into criminality - actual or alleged - inside newspapers.
Although The Sun has declared, in a smart, punning headline, that Rebekah Brooks' acquittal was a "great day for red tops", the full picture is rather more complex.
The scale of the investigation remains enormous and it could take another two years, if not longer, for all the potential cases to come to conclusion.
Scotland Yard has run 11 linked operations since it relaunched its inquiry into hacking in 2011. Detectives have arrested 210 people and interviewed others under caution.
Scotland Yard's investigations
The investigations began with Operation Weeting - examining hacking at the News of the World - and then branched out into Operation Elveden - looking at allegations of corrupt payments to public officials. Police then launched a third plank to look at computer hacking and misuse of data.
News of the World trial: Evidence in documents
The trial of Rebekah Brooks, Andy Coulson and others included hundreds of documents explaining how hacking existed at the heart of the News of the World.
Private investigator Glenn Mulcaire, former news editors Greg Miskiw and James Weatherup and former reporters Dan Evans and Neville Thurlbeck had admitted being part of a conspiracy to intercept voicemails.
No ordinary newspaper
The News of the World wasn't an ordinary newspaper when Andy Coulson was its editor. It had another team you didn't find in your average tabloid newsroom.
Alongside the news reporters and feature writers, there was a department of criminality - a conspiracy at the heart of his newspaper to get the story at any cost.
How do you define Islamist extremism?
The Birmingham Trojan Horse row has reignited a long and difficult debate over defining Islamist extremism.
Today, the government defines extremism as "vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs".
Confidence in police levels-off as fewer see officers on street
The number of people who have seen a police officer on the beat at least once a week has fallen, official figures for England and Wales indicate.
This fall in police visibility during 2012-13 is the first recorded in official figures since 2009-10.
Sean Rigg custody death officer quits Metropolitan Police
The police watchdog's demand that Scotland Yard halts the resignation is highly unusual.
Sometimes police inform the IPCC if they think an officer who has faced investigation is considering departing - but in the case of PC Birks, neither the watchdog nor Sean Rigg's family saw this coming.
Police fail to seize terror inmate Munir Farooqi's home
Under the Terrorism Act 2000, courts can order convicted offenders to forfeit anything that has been "used for the purposes of terrorism".
In practical terms, this power would be typically used to seize computers, phones and vehicles. Jailed drug dealers and other offenders can be forced under different laws to give up homes, if it can be shown that the property was bought from criminal profits.

Court of Appeal overturns move to halt fraud trial
"Even if Operation Cotton does finally get to trial, the judgement has not made the bigger problem go away - there needs to be some kind of new long-term deal between barristers and the government"
