Former Post Office CEO Paula Vennells has arrived at Aldwych House in London to present proof to the inquiry into the Horizon IT scandal.

Ms Vennells arrived at 7.45am and didn’t reply any questions as she walked a brief distance as much as the venue, as she was mobbed by photographers and escorted in by police. Former subpostmaster Lee Castleton mentioned he’s “really looking forward” to listening to Paula Vennells’ proof to the Horizon IT inquiry.

Mr Castleton, from Bridlington, East Yorkshire, was discovered to have a £25,000 shortfall at his department in 2004. He was made bankrupt after he misplaced his authorized battle with the Post Office.

He informed the PA information company exterior Aldwych House on Wednesday: “I’m really looking forward to listen to what she has to say. It’s a good platform for her to finally speak. She’s not been able to, for whatever reason, speak for all these years. I think it’s important that she is listened to and heard and then we can all judge that.”

He mentioned he hoped to listen to “the truth”.

”Let’s hear what, why and when, and who – who was concerned in these choices, why these choices have been made,” he continued. “And let’s listen to the other side of what we’ve heard already, which is the impact of those decisions, to hear what the reasons for those decisions were.”

Asked what message he would ship to Ms Vennells if he may, Mr Castleton informed PA: “This is your chance to put it out there. The world’s listening, if you like. Do what you feel is right.”
