LONDON (AP) - A spokesman for Rebekah Brooks says police have taken possession of a bag containing a laptop and papers that belong to her husband, former racehorse trainer Charlie Brooks.

But David Wilson adds that the bag did not contain anything related to the phone hacking scandal and he expected the police to return it to them soon.

The bag was found dumped in a car park near the Brooks home on Monday, but it was unclear how exactly it got there. Wilson said Tuesday a friend of Charlie Brooks had meant to drop the bag off, but he would say only he left it in the “wrong place.”

Police refused to comment on the matter.
