Carina Trimingham loses privacy case against Daily Mail

Carina Trimingham, partner of the former minister Chris Huhne, has lost her case against the Daily Mail for alleged breach of privacy and harassment.

The PR adviser sued for compensation over Daily Mail articles she described as "highly unpleasant and hurtful". She has been ordered to pay £250,000 in costs.

Speaking outside court, the PR adviser said she was concerned the judgement would become a blueprint for bullies and bigots. Ms Trimingham said she would appeal the ruling.
