Former Government chief whip Andrew Mitchell has been ordered to pay interim costs of £300,000 after he lost his High Court libel action over the "Plebgate" incident.
The defeat of Andrew Mitchell's libel action over the 'Plebgate' incident is a "vindication" for The Sun and its journalists, the newspaper's managing editor has said.
A woman who bit off part of a relative's nose after a funeral has been jailed for 12 years today.
Jodie Rutley, 21, from Cleveland, attacked 23-year-old Sherie Watson - her second cousin - at a wake at the Quoits Club in Guisborough in February this year.
Rutley and Sherie Watson had known each other all their lives, but were not on speaking terms when they attended the wake of 19-year-old Jordan Dowson, who died in a car crash, Teesside Crown Court heard.
Following the bite attack, Rutley returned to Watson with a large kitchen knife in each hand and the woman was injured again when she tried to defend herself, the court heard.
Judge Howard Crowson jailed Rutley, of The Charltons in Saltburn, for six and a half years for biting Watson's nose and five and half years for the knife attack.
Former Conservative MP Louise Mensch has strongly criticised a judge's decision to find against Andrew Mitchell in his libel action over The Sun's reporting of the 'Plebgate' incident, describing it as an "appalling miscarriage of justice".
Ms Mensch, who is a Sun on Sunday columnist, tweeted:
Football legend Pele's aide says the former player is 'completely fine', after reports he had been moved to an intensive care unit, after being admitted in hospital due to a urinary infection..
Jose Fornos Rodrigues told Reuters that Pele was moved for the sake of privacy.
"He was uncomfortable with so many people coming. It'll be quieter now," Rodrigues said.
The police officer at the centre of the Plebgate row has said the "pain" of going through the courts "has been indescribable" after a judge found in his favour over Andrew Mitchell.
Speaking outside the High Court, PC Toby Rowland said he had "huge regret" that "what happened at the gates of Downing Street more than two years ago ended up here".
He said he and his team had tried "everything possible" to avoid court action.
"I am delighted that here again my innocence, integrity and reputation as a police officer has been recognised," he added.
PC Rowland also called for a "line to be drawn" over the incident.
The overall costs of Andrew Mitchell's failed 'Plebgate' libel battle have been put at £3 million, court sources have told the Press Association.
Brazilian football legend Pele is reportedly in intensive care at a hospital in Sao Paulo.
Pele was admitted for a urinary tract infection and has since undergone surgery to remove kidney stones, but his condition is now worsening, according to reports.
A statement released to Brazilian press stated: "The Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein said that the Edson Arantes do Nascimento patient (Pele) was admitted with clinical instability.
"To receive the best care, he was transferred to be monitored in a special care unit."
Former Government chief whip Andrew Mitchell has said he is "bitterly disappointed" to have lost his High Court libel action over the "Plebgate" incident.
Speaking outside the High Court, Mr Mitchell said the verdict came after a "miserable two years".
The MP, who has been ordered to pay interim costs of £300,000, said he now wanted to "bring this matter to a close and and get on with our lives".
After the ruling PC Toby Rowland said he hoped a "line can be drawn and everyone can be left in peace".
