TRIAL: Rebekah Brooks

A CONKER, DVD cases with titles such as Instant Lesbian, homeopathic medicine and a 50p piece were among the assorted items found in bags stashed in the car park of Rebekah and Charles Brooks' London home, the phone-hacking trial at the Old Bailey in London has heard.

The court was shown pictures of a brown leather satchel and a black bag which were handed in to police by a building manager after being discovered by a cleaner on July 18, 2011, the day after Rebekah Brooks' arrest.

The court was told that Charles Brooks, who had come in search of the property, told staff the two bags had been dropped off for him the night before and there had been some sort of mix-up.

Photos of the bags and lists of their contents were shown to the jury. The brown bag contained a phone, a dictaphone, a small USB stick, laptop computer, correspondence, homeopathic medicine, pills, a conker, a brown envelope containing DVD cases and other items and cheque books in the name of Charles and Rebekah Brooks.

The contents of the black bag included more letters, an Apple laptop with an NI (News International) tag, an iPad, 50p piece and a blue bag that contained a bronze-coloured charm on a chain.

Former News International chief executive Brooks (44) and racehorse trainer Charles Brooks (50), both of Churchill, Oxfordshire, along with then head of security Mark Hanna (50), of Buckingham, Buckinghamshire, deny conspiring to pervert the course of justice between July 15 and July 19, 2011.
