Back in harness

Congratulations to Rebekah Brooks, now back at the helm of News UK just over four years since her resignation, and returning this time as a working mum.

Her compensation for loss of office was estimated at £16m. At one stage, it was thought that some of that was being used to pay her legal fees and costs in the phone-hacking trial, which have been estimated at between £5m and £7m. They will have including the rental of a Georgian townhouse in Bloomsbury, within walking distance of the Old Bailey.

But in October last year, it became clear that NewsUK had been indemnifying Brooks' legal costs, when claims for repayment were suddenly dropped.

So, if evenly spread, she's been struggling by on £4m a year. Wonder what her salary might be ?
