'Plebgate' libel ruling: Reaction outside High Court

Reaction following a High Court ruling on the 'Plebgate' libel actions following an alleged altercation between former Government chief whip Andrew Mitchell and PC Toby Rowland in Downing Street in September 2012.

Mr Mitchell had sued News Group Newspapers over claims he called PC Rowland a "pleb" during an altercation at Downing Street in September 2012.

PC Rowland had in turn sued Mr Mitchell maintaining that the MP's statements made from December 2012 falsely suggested that he had fabricated his allegations.
