Rebekah Brooks Faces Wait On Further Charges
Former News International CEO Rebekah Brooks has had her bail renewed over allegations of phone hacking and illegal payments to police and other officials.
She is already facing trial over cover-up charges, but must now wait at least another two months to learn whether she will face more charges.
Mrs Brooks, ex-editor of the Sun and News of the World, was arrested last July, 10 days after the closure of the NOTW.
She was first questioned over allegations of phone hacking and illegal payments and those investigations continue.
She has now been told that her bail has been extended for two months.
Last week, she was charged with three counts of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
She said she would fight the charges, in which she is accused of hiding computer files and documents from police.
She is due to appear in court next month with her racehorse trainer husband, Charlie, and four others who all face one charge.
