Former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks spoke of her "car crash" personal life as she gave evidence at the phone-hacking trial.

She told the Old Bailey she had had a "dysfunctional" affair with ex-News of the World editor Andy Coulson during her marriage to actor Ross Kemp.

Mrs Brooks also said she did not know about the NoW's £92,000 contract with phone hacker Glenn Mulcaire while editor.

Mrs Brooks, Mr Coulson and five others deny all charges against them.
