Eight charged with phone hacking
The other former NOTW staff who face court action are ex-managing editor Stuart Kuttner, former news editor Greg Miskiw, former head of news Ian Edmondson, ex-chief reporter Neville Thurlbeck and former reporter James Weatherup. They are accused along with private investigator Glenn Mulcaire.
All eight are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on August 16, the Crown Prosecution Service said.
The CPS told former News of the World journalist Ross Hall, who wrote under the name Ross Hindley, freelance journalist Terenia Taras and former Evening Standard sports reporter Raoul Simons that no further action will be taken against them. A decision has yet to be made in relation to another two people, legal adviser Alison Levitt QC said.
Former News of the World chief reporter Neville Thurlbeck said he will "vigorously fight" to clear his name. He said: "I have always operated under the strict guidance and advice of News International's lawyers and under the instructions of the newspaper's editors, which will be abundantly clear when this matter comes to court. I will vigorously fight to clear my reputation."
