Post Office inquiry: former boss Vennells admits evidence was false

Chief Correspondent

Former Post Office boss Paula Vennells has begun giving evidence at the Horizon inquiry.

The ex-CEO broke down in tears four times during her testimony.

Almost a thousand subpostmasters were wrongly prosecuted and many believe Ms Vennells was at the heart of an orchestrated cover-up.

But much of her defence today focused around shifting blame, and in her words, being too trusting.
