Sacked News of the World editor Andy Coulson has today sacked his current legal counsel in the phone-hacking scandal, over the issue of legal fees and representation.
Mr Coulson has been in negotiations with a new team of legal counsellors he is believed to have contacted through the Los Angeles underground, and who were seen arriving at court yesterday in a distinctive black and red van.
A spokesman for Mr Coulson is quoted as saying: "I lookin' fo'ward to workin' wit this fool, sucker, and any man who say'n different is gonna get his head busted."
Mr Coulson, whose previous counsel claimed to have a talking car who helped him solve crimes, was sectioned last week under the Mental Health Act.
The case continues.
