London: A jury has been given an insight into the inner workings of tabloid phone hacking at the trial of two former editors of Rupert Murdoch's defunct News of the World.

Former editors Rebekah Brooks and Andrew Coulson are on trial, along with six others, on a range of charges related to hacking and bribery.

Prosecutors today played a recording of private investigator Glenn Mulcaire "blagging" seeking information about a mobile phone passcode from a service provider using a false name.

Prosecution lawyer Andrew Edis said Mulcaire made the recording himself.

The jury was also shown emails from Mulcaire to then-News of the World news editor Ian Edmondson containing mobile phone numbers and details of voicemail inboxes for politician and royals.
