Channel 4: Will be 'vigorously defending' ageism claim

Former horse racing pundit is suing Channel 4 for £3 million after being dropped last year.

We are grateful to John McCririck for his contribution towards the success of Channel 4 Racing over many years.

However we reject the suggestion that discrimination on the basis of age played any part in the decision not to renew his freelance contract and we will be vigorously defending this claim.
