The partner of former Cabinet Minister Chris Huhne has lost her case against the Daily Mail for alleged breach of privacy and harassment.

The High Court judge said Carina Trimingham was not the purely private figure she has claimed to be and ordered her to pay £250,000 in costs.

Andrew Pierce, a columnist with the Daily Mail who wrote about Ms Trimingham, said the ruling was a ''very important victory''.
