Mr Sheridan began by asking Ms Khan about a photograph of his wedding, which had been presented to her by the prosecution the day before. He asked if she had ever seen the photograph before to which the witness responded that she had possibly seen the photograph in a newspaper. Mr Sheridan asked the witness about a statement she had made to police in 2006 that she had been shown a photograph of Gary Clark by Bob Bird (the Scottish editor of the News of the World) The witness said that she did not recall being shown that particular photo although she did recall having been shown pictures of 'Louise" (whom she testified she had met at the Cupids club in Manchester in 2002) and her husband when they appeared to be "on a boat." However she denied that she had "ever identified anyone" for the News of the World, an answer that Mr Sheridan called "ridiculous."
Mr Sheridan then returned to Ms Khan's to Ms Khan's previous testimony in this trial and reminded her about the affidavit she had signed for the News of the World that claimed that her visit to the Cupids club in Manchester had happened in 2001. Mr Sheridan again asked why the witness had said 2001 when she she was now testifying the event happened in 2002. Ms Khan referred to her previous evidence that she had signed the affidavit "in haste" and "if she had more time she would have "thought it through."
The defence then moved on to ask about Ms Khan's claim she had not benefited financially from her account of the alleged visit to Cupids. Mr Sheridan asked first about an attempt by ms Khan's agent to sell the story to the Daily Mail newspaper for 30,000 pounds and also pointed to a line at the bottom of the original NotW piece which offered a discount for readers to buy Ms Khan's book. She again stated she did not benefit financially from the publicity in the NotW as she had received no further payment from the publishers other than the original advance.
Mr Sheridan then put it to the witness that she had been told by "her friend Bob Bird" that she would "double her money" if she helped him. Ms Khan replied this was "not true" and at that point Mr Sheridan suggested this would be a good time for the court to break for lunch. Lord Bracadale agreed and the court adjourned.
