Jenny McCririck: John's taken tribunal verdict 'badly'

The wife of John McCririck has told ITV News that he has taken an employment tribunal's decision that he wasn't sacked because of his age "quite badly" and he is "quite upset."

Jenny McCririck said the racing pundit thought he would win the case against Channel 4 and "couldn't believe" he had lost.

She said it was unlikely they would appeal the tribunal's decision which she described as "disappointing".

And she rejected claims in the judgement that it was her husband's pantomime persona that was 'unpalatable' to programme makers not his age.

In a statement Channel 4 welcomed the ruling and said it was disappointed the claim had been brought to court.
