Attorney General Dominic Grieve welcomes contempt verdict

Two newspapers have been fined a total of £68,000 for breaking the law when reporting the investigation into landscape architect Jo Yeates' killing.

The High Court said reports in the Daily Mirror and the Sun about early suspect Christopher Jefferies were in contempt of court.

Attorney General Dominic Grieve welcomed the contempt judgement, saying it would encourage other newspapers to avoid the same type of coverage in the future.
