The Times reports former sub-postmasters and mistresses wrongly accused of stealing money, due to a computer accounting error, have died without getting compensation payouts. It says campaigners claim postmasters were being “timed out” in negotiations and called on ministers to intervene. Up to £1bn of taxpayers’ money has been set aside for compensation claims, but delays and legal wrangling could mean more victims fail to receive a settlement while they are alive, the paper reports. For the Times’ front page picture, a Madame Tussauds waxwork of Camilla, the Queen Consort, is given some finishing touches ahead of the Coronation next week.
