COULSON: 18 MONTHS FOR ARCH PHONE HACKER

CENTRAL LONDON Shamed News of the World editor Andy Coulson has been jailed for 18 months for leading 'utterly corrupted' journalists in a relentless campaign of phone hacking. The former spin doctor to David Cameron orchestrated an industrial scale operation to intrude into the private lives of the rich and famous. Coulson, 46, was at the heart of the disgraced Sunday tabloid's 'dark arts', ordering his reporters to hack cabinet members, Royals, film stars, and victims of crime. Some of his biggest scoops were fuelled by phone hacking, as up to 5,500 people fell victim to the News of the World's illegal pursuit of stories. Coulson was exposed during his trial as a bullying editor of an aggressive newsroom, where exclusives were demanded at all costs and reporters failing to produce were told to 'jump off a cliff'.

MORRISON: UNLAWFUL KILLING VERDICT IN ROUGH SLEEPER INQUEST

STIRLING; MARBLE ARCH An asylum seeker told a psychiatrist he was going to kill a day before he strangled a rough sleeper at Marble Arch, an inquest heard. Ghodratollah Barani, 26, throttled Mark Morrison, 46, from Stirling, Scotland, with a piece of tent fabric in June 2012, Westminster Coroner's Court heard. He had previously claimed he was the king of Afghanistan and demanded to be let into Buckingham Palace but was thought to be faking symptoms to stay in the country. Barani had recently had his application for asylum rejected, and was in the process of appealing the decision at the time of the killing. At an inquest into Mr Morrison's death, two psychiatrists said they thought Barani's claims that voices in his head were telling him to kill someone might have been a ruse to get asylum.
