The phone hacking e-mail exchange between Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson

An extraordinary email exchange between Rebekah Brooks (then Wade) and her ” good friend ” Andy Coulson has been released by the Crown Prosecution Service and published by Peter Jukes.

Exchanged on the day Royal reporter Clive Goodman and private investigator Glenn Mulcaire pleaded guilty to phone hacking in the ” rogue reporter ” case in 2006, it reveals an extraordinary plan to leak the fact that Rebekah’s phone and the phone of Paul Dacre, editor of the Daily Mail  have been hacked by Mulcaire.

Coulson is cool on the idea  while Rebekah, who appears to be paranoid about Guardian Media getting the story, seems pretty jittery. A case of fear and loathing in Fleet Street.

 You can read the full  short exchange on  the Peter Jukes blog.
