(AP) A former deputy news editor at The Sun newspaper has been charged over allegations of corrupt payments to public officials, the latest in a series of charges leveled against senior journalists at the scandal-stricken paper.


Prosecutors said Thursday that Ben O'Driscoll is accused of authorizing payments of at least 5,000 pounds (nearly $8,000) to officials including police officers and employees at Broadmore, a high-security hospital, in return for tips.


Many of O'Driscoll current and former Sun colleagues including some of the newspaper's most senior staff have also been charged with corruption-related offenses.


About a dozen reporters and editors are due to be tried on various counts, including the paper's former editor-in-chief, Rebekah Brooks.
