Stuart Kuttner’s Emails to Surrey Police over Milly Dowler

Here are copies of the two emails, discussed in evidence today and throughout this week, of former News of the World Managing Editor, Stuart Kuttner, emails to Surrey police in April 2002, following the disappearance the previous month of Milly Dowler.

The first email from Friday 12th of April is from the same day, as other evidence has revealed, five NOTW journalists were sent to Telford thanks to Glenn Mulcaire‘s hacking of Dowler’s voicemail, picking up a (wrong number) message from a recruiting agency about a job at print factory. Kuttner’s editor, Rebekah Brooks, was in Dubai that weekend.

The second email, sent initially on the 19th of April, was resent on the Saturday. In this version Kuttner explicitly acknowledges the previous NOTW story was based on Milly Dowler’s voicemail messages. Kuttner claimed NOTW changed the story to reflect the new information from Surrey Police that the voicemail from the recruiting agency was a ‘hoax’. However, the hoax allegation was contained in the first two editions of the Sunday tabloid. In the third edition, all references to voicemails were removed.
