Cameron declines to comment on Nigella ex-PAs verdict

Asked if he was pleased about the verdict in the fraud trial of Nigella Lawson's former assistants, David Cameron has told journalists: "I've probably said enough about this, so I'll take the 5th."

The judge in the trial told jurors to ignore his comments from an interview with the Spectator magazine in which he confirmed he was on "Team Nigella" - the name of a campaign started by the TV cook's fans.

Judge Robin Johnson said: "It is of regret when people in public office comment about a person who is involved in a trial which is in progress."
