There is just room here to report that Computer Weekly, which has been closely following the problems subpostmasters claim to be suffering over their Horizon accounting system, says that "a sub-postmistress accused of theft from the Post Office has had her case postponed to allow experts time to investigate the accounting IT system at her branch".

The report adds: "Seema Misra, postmistress at the West Byfleet Post Office in Surrey, is accused of one count of theft of £74,000. She claims the IT system may have caused the account deficit."
