In what is being hailed as a victory for free speech, investigative journalist Carole Cadwalladr has successfully defended a libel case against prominent Brexiter Aaron Banks

Cadwalladr raised questions in a Ted Talk and a tweet about the relationship between millionaire businessman Banks and the Russian state.

Had she lost, the investigative journalist would have faced financial ruin, but in the High Court Mrs Justice Steyn ruled that Cadwalladr had “reasonable grounds to believe that her intended meaning was true” and upheld her public interest defence.

Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
