Barry Gardiner MP has received a substantial settlement of his libel claim against News UK and Jeremy Kyle.
Mr Gardiner MP was represented by Martin Howe of Howe + Co and Mark Henderson of Doughty Street Chambers.
The claim related to a false statement by broadcaster, Jeremy Kyle, on his TalkRADIO show that Mr Gardiner had employed a Chinese spy in his office.
TalkRADIO broadcasted an on air retraction and apology by Jeremy Kyle, and the claim has now been resolved with a substantial settlement, including a payment towards Mr Gardiner’s legal costs. Mr Gardiner is using the substantial settlement to make a donation to London Community Kitchen who operate a foodbank in Brent and Harrow.
