Blogger Jacqui Thompson 'devastated' at court loss

A blogger who sued a council chief executive for libel says she is "absolutely devastated" after losing the case and being told to pay him £25,000 damages when he counter-sued.

Jacqui Thompson launched her action after a letter responding to criticism of Carmarthenshire council, after she was ejected from a meeting for filming.

But the High Court dismissed her claim.

BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas reports.
