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.
We have always stood by our story and continue to do so. We are delighted that the judge has ruled that what we reported about events on Downing Street in the evening in question was the truth and accurate.
There has been a lot of speculation and comment about Mr Mitchell's outburst, and criticism of our newspaper. The judgment today lays all that to rest.
Our article broke this important public interest story, and it has been independently and conclusively confirmed. The Sun can be proud of its journalism today.
