Shock new editorial job offer for Rebekah Brooks

The Chipping Norton News, a community newspaper staffed by volunteers, has made a job offer to local resident Rebekah Brooks as she searches for a new post after resigning as chief excutive of News International following the phone hacking scandal.

The job offer to join the News comes via a letter today in probably Brooks' least favourite newspaper - the Guardian.

Keith Ruddle, of the Chipping Norton News editorial team, says Brooks, a member of the "Chipping Norton set," is welcome to volunteer to work for the town's "thriving community organ."

He writes: "If Rebekah joins the News, she will see it is about real communication of news and views for the community and by the community. No hacking, no blagging – only honest amateur sleuthing, as polite and as balanced as possible – we on the editorial team don't want bricks through our windows.

"Oh and yes, please note the job of supreme editor is not up for grabs."
