A witness has told Britain's phone hacking trial that she overheard tabloid editor Rebekah Brooks and her rival, Piers Morgan, joking at a party about illegal eavesdropping.
Sitham said Morgan also joked with her about Brooks, "'Careful — she'll tap your phone.'"
Brooks was then editor of Rupert Murdoch's Sun newspaper and Morgan edited the Daily Mirror.
Brooks, former News of the World editor Andy Coulson and six others are on trial on hacking-related charges, which they deny.
Morgan, who faces no charges, has denied knowledge of phone hacking at his newspaper.
