MPs have criticised the Post Office for how it has handled claims its IT system caused at least 150 sub-postmasters to be wrongly accused of false accounting and fraud. Sub-postmaster Jo Hamilton told Today presenter John Humphrys: "I had a discrepancy of minus 2,000 so I rang the helpdesk... they told me to do various things and I did that but the amount that I was down doubled. I asked to speak to a supervisor... and whatever we did it wouldn't go back to minus 2,000."
