Rebekah Brooks stood down as chief executive four years ago but could now return
News Corp says it is in talks with Rebekah Brooks after reports she will return as chief of its UK division.
Former News of the World editor Mrs Brooks quit as chief executive four years ago amid the hacking scandal. She was later cleared at trial.
Her re-appointment could be confirmed next month, the Financial Times said.
Meanwhile, the Crown Prosecution Service said it was considering a file for possible corporate prosecution over phone-hacking at the News of the World.
The file relates to evidence gathered as part of Operation Weeting, which investigated illegal voicemail interceptions at the tabloid, which was closed in 2011.
