Food blogger and social activist Jack Monroe has commenced libel proceedings against the controversial journalist and pundit Katie Hopkins, in a row over tweets that Monroe claims implied she defaced, or condoned the defacing of, a war memorial.

Monroe’s lawyers say Hopkins tweeted a picture of a war memorial in London’s Whitehall dedicated to the memory of women’s war efforts that had been daubed with the words “F*** Tory Scum” during an anti-austerity protest.
