Rebekah Brooks has been confirmed as chief executive officer of News UK with Tony Gallagher becoming editor-in-chief of The Sun.

The Brooks move had been widely speculated.

Mrs Brooks, who edited The Sun and The News of the World in a long career at the organisation, quit the job four years ago at the height of the hacking scandal.

She was cleared of all charges following a 138-day trial, and speculation has grown in recent months that she will be making a return to the firm.

The firm also said Tony Gallagher, one of the most experienced newspaper editors in Britain, will become editor-in-chief of the Sun newspaper, Murdoch's daily tabloid which is the highest-selling newspaper in Britain.
