Lord Sugar welcomes tribunal victory against Stella English

Alan Sugar has said a former winner of TV's The Apprentice who lost her claim of constructive dismissal against him should "never have brought this case".

Stella English, who earned £100,000 a year, claimed she had no real role at Lord Sugar's IT firm, Viglen.

Lord Sugar told the employment tribunal at the East London Tribunal Centre he had no case to answer.

He said Ms English was effectively blackmailing him and was trying to damage his reputation.

Speaking to the BBC after the verdict Lord Sugar said it was a "victory against a claims culture".
