Day two: Industrial Tribunal London John McCririck outside the hearing where he will contest his case against Channel 4 for age discrimination.
Racing pundit John McCririck's employment tribunal over alleged age discrimination is to begin.
The 73-year-old is taking former employer Channel 4 and TV production company IMG Media Limited to a tribunal, alleging his sacking last year was motivated by age discrimination.
The case, at the Central London Employment Tribunal, is expected to last up to seven days. McCririck was dropped when the station unveiled a new presenting team headed by Clare Balding.
