Charlie Brooks wanted bag containing 'Instant Lesbian' DVD returned after Rebekah's arrest, court told

Police found lesbian porn DVDs stashed along with cheque books in the name of Charles and Rebekah Brooks in the car park of their London apartment, the hacking trial has heard.

The court was shown pictures of a brown leather satchel and a black bag which were handed into police by a building manager after being discovered by a cleaner on 18 July 2011, the day after Mrs Brooks' arrest.

The court was told Charles Brooks, who had come in search of the property, told staff the two bags had been dropped off for him the night before and there had been some sort of mix up.

Photographs of the bags and lists of their contents were shown to the jury.

The brown bag contained a phone, a dictaphone, small USB stick, laptop computer, correspondence, homeopathic medicine, pills, a conker, a brown envelope containing DVD cases and other items, and cheque books in the name of Charles and Rebekah Brooks.

Titles of DVDs listed included Instant Lesbian, Bride of Sin, and Lesbian Psychodrama volume 2 and 3.

The contents of the black bag included more letters, an Apple laptop with a NI (News International) tag, an iPad, 50p piece, and a blue bag containing a bronze-coloured charm on a chain.

Former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks, 44, and racehorse trainer Charles Brooks, 50, both of Churchill, Oxfordshire, along with then head of security Mark Hanna, 50, of Glynswood Road, Buckingham, Buckinghamshire, deny conspiring to pervert the course of justice between15  and 19 July 2011.

The seven defendants deny the charges against them.

The trial continues.
