Former News International chief Rebekah Brooks soaks up the sun on Cape Town holiday | Mail Online
Public furore erupted last summer after it emerged that a private detective working for the News of the World hacked the mobile phone of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler. Brooks was editor of the paper at the time of Dowler’s disappearance.
Just days after she quit the besieged company at the height of the scandal, Brooks was arrested as part of an investigation over police bungs to journalists. She is bailed to return for questioning in March. Her lawyer has said she denies committing any criminal offence.
Mrs Brooks is a favourite of Rupert Murdoch and is understood to have been told she would one day be able to return to the company, possibly in as little as two years.
