Duncan Lewis, InThePress Solicitors, Viscount accused of assaulting teenage girlfriend in row over cooking tongs (Telegraph and Daily Mail)

Rory Laide, Solicitor in our Crime Department based in Harrow, features in the Telegraph and Daily Mail. In defence of his client at Westminster Magistrates Court, Mr. Laide detailed the impact of negative social media posts being created about his client whilst court proceedings are ongoing. A viscount has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend after an argument over a pair of cooking tongs. The defendant, Lord Ruthven, was accused of throwing his partner, Ms Tyrrell, against a wall when she attempted to use a pair of cooking tongs. He has denied the one charge of assault against him. Lord Ruthven has said he and his partner are in the process of splitting up and “she can’t handle it”. Ms Tyrell will provide evidence behind a screen when the trial begins at Hendon Magistrates' Court. The news of this allegation has led to negative and offensive social media posts being written about Mr Ruthven. His solicitor, Rory Laide, has said: "There have been posts on social media in derogatory terms concerning Mr Ruthven. He has reported them to the police".
