Deja vu in London today as Rebekah Brooks returns to work for Rupert Murdoch at News UK - overseeing The Sun and Times newspapers The former editor of the now defunct News of the World, has a reputation to rebuild and cameras watching her every move She was cleared last year of being involved in a criminal phone hacking campaign- alleged victims included murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler. Darren Sinden is from Admiral Markets. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ADMIRAL MARKETS, MARKET COMMENTATOR, DARREN SINDEN, SAYING: "While she was exonerated in the courts, you know mud sticks occasionally and it will be a while I think before it has gone from people's memories. But who are we to say, you know, Mr. Murdoch knows his business well, he knows the people he thinks can run it and he has placed his faith in Rebecca Brooks so I imagine she will do her very best to try and repay that faith." Brooks faced a four-year struggle to absolve herself. Her next battle - to win back the Sun's dwindling readership.. and the hearts and minds of its employees. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ADMIRAL MARKETS, MARKET COMMENTATOR, DARREN SINDEN, SAYING: "But what he can't perhaps quantify is whether there are any more skeletons in the cupboard that will come out to haunt them.

Brooks' challenge now- to shake off her image as the poster girl for the phone hacking scandal. And re-establish her place among the politicians and business leaders she once called good friends.
