COURTS: Former News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks took advantage of police’s sensitive handling of phone-hacking allegations to set in train an “elaborate little plan” to keep evidence hidden, the Old Bailey heard yesterday.

Prosecutors said they took advantage of being given forward notice to hide evidence.

CRIME: The mother of teenager Jamil Palmer, who was stabbed to death this week, begged for help in finding his killers yesterday.

She said: “Do the right thing in Jamil’s memory. Forget your street code, it is not grassing and it is not cool. Just tell the police what happened and who was involved.”
