On Friday we published a story about Tom Hunt, MP for Ipswich, and the circumstances in which he was elected. A few hours later we withdrew the story. This was not because of complaints, threat of legal action or any criticism. It was because publication of the story immediately drew potentially important new information from other sources, which we felt we should investigate. If upheld, they might change the story significantly, and we felt we would prefer to tell the story afresh having established all the facts.

We are working on that new story now, trying to substantiate or dismiss new claims, and explain previously unknown actions by some of the players. We hope to republish our original story, updated, within the next two weeks.
