Les HintonRupert Murdoch's most long-serving and trusted servant has followed in the footsteps of Rebekah Brooks and fallen on his sword.

Les Hinton, 67, who has worked for the tycoon for 52 years, has resigned from his post as chief executive of Dow Jones, which publishes the Wall Street Journal.

Murdoch said in a statement that he had accepted Mr Hinton's resignation with much sadness at losing his right-hand man after a remarkable journey.

Mr Murdoch added that 'News Corporation is not Rupert Murdoch. It is the collective creativity and effort of many thousands of people around the world, and few individuals have given more to this company than Les Hinton.'
