Message from Rebekah Brooks to staff:

"At News International we pride ourselves on setting the news agenda for the right reasons. Today we are leading the news for the wrong ones. The reputation of the company we love so much, as well as the press freedoms we value so highly, are all at risk.

As Chief Executive of the company, I feel a deep sense of responsibility for the people we have hurt and I want to reiterate how sorry I am for what we now know to have taken place. I have believed that the right and responsible action has been to lead us through the heat of the crisis. However my desire to remain on the bridge has made me a focal point of the debate. This is now detracting attention from all our honest endeavours to fix the problems of the past.

Therefore I have given Rupert and James Murdoch my resignation. While it has been a subject of discussion, this time my resignation has been accepted. Rupert's wisdom, kindness and incisive advice has guided me throughout my career and James is an inspirational leader who has shown me great loyalty and friendship. I would like to thank them both for their support.

I have worked here for 22 years and I know it to be part of the finest media company in the world. News International is full of talented, professional and honourable people. I am proud to have been part of the team and lucky to know so many brilliant journalists and media executives. I leave with the happiest of memories and an abundance of friends. As you can imagine recent times have been tough. I now need to concentrate on correcting the distortions and rebutting the allegations about my record as a journalist, an editor and executive.

My resignation makes it possible for me to have the freedom and the time to give my full cooperation to all the current and future inquiries, the police investigations and the CMS appearance. I am so grateful for all the messages of support. I have nothing but overwhelming respect for you and our millions of readers. I wish every one of you all the best."

No. They are not at risk, they are in tatters.

As Chief Executive of the company, I feel a deep sense of responsibility for the people we have hurt and I want to reiterate how sorry I am for what we now know to have taken place. I have believed that the right and responsible action has been to lead us through the heat of the crisis.
Can you put that in English, please. You may mean "I believed that the right and responsible action was to lead you through the heat of the crisis."
However my desire to remain on the bridge has made me a focal point of the debate. This is now detracting attention from all our honest endeavours to fix the problems of the past.
Your desire to remain in a highly paid post has made you a focal point of hatred.

Therefore I have given Rupert and James Murdoch my resignation. While it has been a subject of discussion, this time my resignation has been accepted. Rupert's wisdom, kindness and incisive advice has guided me throughout my career and James is an inspirational leader who has shown me great loyalty and friendship. I would like to thank them both for their support.
And their money.

I have worked here for 22 years and I know it to be part of the finest media company in the world.
Biggest, not finest.
News International is full of talented, professional and honourable people.
Sadly none of whom work for the Sun or News of the World.
I am proud to have been part of the team and lucky to know so many brilliant journalists and media executives.
In other organisations.
I leave with the happiest of memories and an abundance of friends.
And many more enemies.
As you can imagine recent times have been tough. I now need to concentrate on correcting the distortions and rebutting the allegations about my record as a journalist, an editor and executive.
I am unlikely however to tell the truth, or even a version of it.

My resignation makes it possible for me to have the freedom and the time to give my full cooperation to all the current and future inquiries, the police investigations and the CMS appearance.
And to speak in depth to my lawyers, to decide on a strategy.
I am so grateful for all the messages of support.
Sorry, that should read, 'Both messages of support' - from James and Rupert.
I have nothing but overwhelming respect for you and our millions of readers. I wish every one of you all the best."
Even those we sacked the other day because I refused to stand down.

Rebekah Brooks has sensationally resigned as chief executive of News International.
In an internal email to staff she announced she was standing down saying: 'I feel a deep sense of responsibility for the people we have hurt.
'I now need to concentrate on correcting the distortions and rebutting the allegations about my record as a journalist.'
News Corp announced that she will be replaced by Tom Mockridge, chief executive of Sky Italia.
Rupert Murdoch accepted Rebekah Brooks' resignation today after turning her first two down
Pressure was mounting on her to quit after the second biggest shareholder at News Corp said she 'must go' and Elisabeth Murdoch, one of Rupert Murdoch's daughters, allegedly said that Brooks had 'f****** the company.'
She will still appear before MPs next week to answer questions over the phone hacking scandal.

MP Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee today said he was surprised that she had resigned. She twice told Rupert and James Murdoch that she would resign over the crisis but this time they accepted it.

Brooks today released a statement in which she expressed responsibility for people that have been hurt as a result of the hacking scandal.
Murdoch jnr issued a statement in which he said: 'I understand her decision and I want to thank her for her 22 years of service to the Company.

'She has been one of the outstanding editors of her generation and she can be proud of many accomplishments as an executive.'
Replacement: Tom Mockridge will take over as chief executive of News International
James Murdoch today said that the company had made mistakes and would be apologising in all national newspapers this weekend
Mr Murdoch also announced that apologies will appear in all national newspaper this weekend over phone hacking.
Murdoch jnr has also announced that the company will try to rebuild bridges with advertisers announcint that News Corp would be 'sending letters to our commercial partners with an update on the actions we are taking.

He added: 'Next week, my father and I will appear before the (Culture Media and Sport) Select Committee and will speak to them directly about our determination to put things right.

'The Company has made mistakes. It is not only receiving appropriate scrutiny, but is also responding to unfair attacks by setting the record straight.

'I would like to conclude by saying thank you. Throughout this time, you have gotten out great papers every day and have stayed focused. I am deeply grateful for that.'
Labour frontbencher Chris Bryant, who has been a leading critic over the phone-hacking scandal, said Ms Brooks should have left before.

'I think it is right that she goes. I think she should have gone a very long time ago,' he told Sky News. 'Frankly, she should have gone when she said she had paid police officers for information back in 2003.'

He added: 'I thought it was disgraceful when the newspaper last week was closed as a way of trying to protect Rebekah Brooks and then Mr Murdoch saying that she was his priority.

'It felt like those in the boiler room were carrying the can for those who were really at the helm of the ship.'

She wrote saying:

At News International we pride ourselves on setting the news agenda for the right reasons.

Today we are leading the news for the wrong ones.

The reputation of the company we love so much, as well as the press freedoms we value so highly, are all at risk.

As Chief Executive of the company, I feel a deep sense of responsibility for the people we have hurt and I want to reiterate how sorry I am for what we now know to have taken place.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
