Judge ordered Lord Sugar to remove expenses 'tweet'

Judge ordered Lord Sugar to remove expenses 'tweet'

Lord Sugar was told to remove a Twitter message speculating on whether a peer on trial for expenses fraud would be cleared because he was a Conservative, it has emerged.

A Judge ordered the Labour peer and Apprentice star to take down the post in January during the trial of Lord Taylor, who was ultimately convicted.

Justice Saunders ruled the message could unfairly influence jurors.

The media was prevented from reporting the matter at the time.
