Phone Hacking: Brooks Charge Decision Due
Former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks and six others are due to find out if they are to be charged with perverting the course of justice during the phone-hacking scandal.
The group - understood to include Mrs Brooks' racehorse trainer husband Charlie - will learn the outcome of a police investigation after answering bail.
Cheryl Carter, Mrs Brooks' former PA, and News International's (NI) head of security, Mark Hanna, are also expected to be included in an announcement by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
Mrs Brooks resigned as chief executive of NI in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal, although she maintains she was unaware of the practice during her time at the News Of The World.
The 43-year-old became the tabloid's editor in 2000, then moved to take the helm of The Sun in 2003.
She was appointed chief executive of NI in 2009 before resigning in July 2011.
The decision from prosecutors comes just days after Mrs Brooks gave almost an entire day's evidence at the Leveson Inquiry into media standards.
