Paula Vennells arrives as she faces first day of evidence

Former Post Office boss Paula Vennells is set to be quizzed on her role in the Horizon scandal – including likely questions on whether she deliberately misled MPs.

The disgraced ex-chief executive is due to begin her three days of evidence to the Horizon IT inquiry on Wednesday amid claims she covered-up the Post Office’s knowledge of bugs in the faulty accounting software.
