The publisher of the Daily Mirror has been refused permission to appeal against the finding that its coverage of Christopher Jefferies and the murder of Joanna Yeates breached contempt laws.

Daily Mirror publisher Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) was fined £50,000 in July last year for a series of articles in the paper about Jefferies, the former landlord of Yeates who was arrested in December 2010 in relation to her murder but released without charge. Vincent Tabak was convicted of the crime in October 2011.
