The Crown Prosecution Service have released today the contents found in the brown briefcase owned by Charlie Brooks  examined by the Met police.

The full content list can be read on Peter Jukes blog  whom I am indebted for quick publication tonight.

 Followers will remember this was the bag recovered by a cleaner and handed over to the police. It was also the subject of allegations by the prosecution that it was part of a conspiracy to try to get rid of evidence once his wife, Rebekah Brooks, alleged code name Black Hawk for security reasons, had been arrested.

 The police have already released a video taken from the 24 hour security cameras at Chelsea Harbour, the London home of the Brooks family. Today they added some pictures.

 Altogether there are seven DVDs- ranging from titles like Bride of Sin to Instant Lesbian and Lesbian Psychodramas. Other contents include the Kunekune Pig Society newsletter,a pair of Falke Shelina 12 tights and more mundane items like pens,a conker, homeopathic medicine and chequebooks from top banker William Hoare & Co.

 The court was also told yesterday that Mr Books  may have threatened to sue the manager of Chelsea Harbour for handing over the bag to the police after he couldn’t retrieve it from the porters lodge.
