Former chief whip Andrew Mitchell probably called police officers "plebs", a judge has ruled in his verdict on a High Court libel action. Mr Justice Mitting said "on the balance of probabilities" he was satisfied that the MP did use the word "pleb". He described Mr Mitchell's behaviour as "childish" and found his version of events inconsistent with CCTV footage of the row in Downing Street in 2012.
Mr Justice Mitting gave his verdict after listening to two weeks of evidence from 26 witnesses and considering volumes of documents concerning a 15-second exchange. Weighing up the competing claims, the judge said PC Rowland was "not the sort of man who would have had the wit, imagination or inclination to invent on the spur of the moment an account of what a senior politician had said to him in temper".
