Jack Monroe was 'devastated' by Hopkins' memorial tweets

Jack Monroe "had no choice" but to take Katie Hopkins to court for libel after a row over two tweets.

The food blogger won £24,000 damages, plus legal costs, after Ms Hopkins posted tweets in May 2015 asking about "scrawling on memorials".

Monroe said the two-year case had a huge impact on her personal life.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme is broadcast on weekdays between 09:00 and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News channel.
