Ex-News of the World reporter says editor Andy Coulson heard hacked Daniel Craig voicemail

Former tabloid journalist Dan Evans leaves The Old Bailey law court in London, Monday, Jan. 27, 2014. Evans told Britain's phone hacking trial on Monday that he intercepted voicemails with the knowledge of senior staff _ not just at the now-defunct News of the World, whose employees are standing trial, but at the rival Sunday Mirror.

LONDON - A tabloid reporter who has pleaded guilty to phone hacking says he played the News of the World's editor a hacked voicemail left for actor Daniel Craig by actress Sienna Miller.

Dan Evans is a prosecution witness at the trial of his former boss, Andy Coulson, and six others.

Evans said Tuesday that in 2005 he eavesdropped on Craig's voicemails and heard a message from a woman that ended: "I love you."

The call came from Miller's number. The newspaper later ran a story alleging an affair between the actress — then involved with Jude Law — and future 007 Craig.

Evans said Coulson heard the recording, then told him how to cover his tracks so it would look like it had been dropped off anonymously.

Coulson denies all charges.
