Chris Huhne partner Carina Trimingham loses privacy case

The partner of ex-Liberal Democrat cabinet minister Chris Huhne has lost her high court case against Associated Newspapers for alleged breach of privacy and harassment.

Carina Trimingham was "not the purely private figure she had claimed to be," the judge said as she was ordered to pay £250,000 costs.

Ms Trimingham said this could become a "blueprint for bullies and bigots".

The Daily Mail's Andrew Pierce said it was a "vindication of our journalism".
