Disgraced Tory MP Andrew Mitchell has lost his court bido cut his £3 million bill for a failed libel action – and has now added an extra £100,000 to his tab.

Mr Mitchell sued The Sun, but was then himself sued by PC Toby Rowland. The costs of entire litigation were estimated at £3 million in November last year. A judge has now rejected Mr Mitchell’s bid to reduce the overall bill he has to pay and has an extra £100,000 for the costs of the appeal hearings.
