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:
I say again that Andrew Mitchell should be given back his front bench post, stolen from him by police collusion; police jailed for it.
A civil case is a civil case; no way do I believe Andrew at any time used the word "pleb" to police officers. A shocking result.
