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 disagreement over a brief angry exchange between Andrew Mitchell and Downing Street police has ended two years later in a devastating High Court judgement for the former government chief whip.
While Mr Mitchell has been ordered to pay initial costs of £300,000 after his libel action defeat, as ITV News Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen reports, it is estimated the 'Plebgate' case could end up costing him £3 million.
The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has described today's fatal suicide bomb in Kabul as "horrendous" in a statement strongly condemning the Taliban attack.
A Briton and five Afghans were killed in the attack on a convoy transporting British embassy staff in Kabul this morning.
A second Briton and several other Afghan civilians were wounded.
The head of cricket at Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) has paid tribute to Australian batsman Phil Hughes, who he called a "prodigious talent" on the field.
John Stephenson said Hughes had instantly impressed when he arrived at Lord's, calling him an "amazing young player, very talented."
Hughes had already scored two test match centuries by the time he turned 20.
Mr Stephenson went on to tell ITV News that Hughes was on the verge of getting back into the test team, and would have had "10 good years" at the top had tragedy not struck.
The defeat of Andrew Mitchell's libel action against News Group Newspapers 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.
