Girl, 15, arrested over attack on Christopher Meyer at Victoria Tube station

Sir Christopher Meyer the former Chairman of the Press Complaints Commission arrives at the High Court to give evidence to the Leveson Inquiry

A 15-year-old schoolgirl is one of two teenagers suspected of attacking the former British ambassador to the USA who was set upon at a Tube station.

She said that her husband looks "terrible", and has an eye like a "golf ball", as well as a possible broken nose.

"He looks bad, the CAT scan came back fine, there is no major head injury but his face looks awful, his". I'm absolutely shocked by the level of the brutality. They really beat him. It's appalling - like something you would see in a war zone.

A photo published in the newspaper shows the former ambassador in a hospital bed with his eyes closed and his face covered in blood.
