Report from the trial of The Sun journalists from Kingston Crown Court

Six Sun journalists have been charged with conspiracy in a public office. The sting of the charge is that cash payments were paid to public officials,  including a nurse at the Broadmoor asylum, in exchange for stories.

Arguing for the Defence, Oliver Blunt QC said that his client Mr Dudman had questioned why certain members of the police in the Soham investigation were given money for information.

However there were no cash payments made without editor Rebekah Wade’s approval.

Mr Dudman has denied three charges of conspiring to commit misconduct in a public office.

The trial continues.
