Daily Mirror and Sun fined over Jo Yeates stories

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.

His lawyer, Louis Charalambous, described his client as "satisfied" with the outcome.
