Hacking: Sun Reporter Charged Over MP's Phone
A Sun journalist and a member of the public are to be charged with offences linked to the theft of a mobile phone belonging to MP Siobhain McDonagh.
Reporter Nick Parker is accused of one count of receiving stolen goods and one of unauthorised access to computer material.
Michael Ankers, 29, from south-west London, faces one charge of theft.
Gregor McGill, a senior lawyer at the Crown Prosecution Service, said both men will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on November 6.
It is alleged that Ankers stole the mobile phone on or around October 17, 2010.
Parker, 52, from Twickenham, is accused of dishonestly receiving the phone between October 17 and 21, 2010.
Mr McGill said prosecutors had decided there was insufficient evidence to charge another suspect in relation to the case.
Labour MP Ms McDonagh, who has represented Mitcham and Morden since 1997, had her mobile phone stolen from her car in Colliers Wood, south-west London, on October 17, 2010.
The accusations against Parker and Ankers bring the number of people charged under Operation Tuleta, a Scotland Yard investigation into alleged privacy breaches, to three.
