Rebekah Brooks received £11m pay-off after quitting NOTW
London: Rebekah Brooks, former editor of the now-defunct British tabloid News of the World British, was given 11million pounds pay-off when she resigned at the height of the phone-hacking scandal, it has emerged.

Her pay-off when she quit as chief executive of News International last year was initially believed to be 3.5 million pounds, then reportedly 7 million pounds.

But recent accounts published by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation revealed the true sum was significantly higher and will continue to grow, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the paper, the account details revealed that Brooks received 10.8 million pounds as ‘compensation for loss of office.’

The paper said that the sum, which dwarfs the 2 million dollars compensation paid by News International to the family of Milly Dowler for hacking her phone, includes ‘various ongoing benefits’ including funding a London office and staff for two years.
