Pic shows:  Libel case MEP Jane Collins arrives at the High Court today.<br />
<br />
17.5.16<br />
 Ukip MEP who was sued over remarks she made about Rotherham's three Labour MPs in relation to the town's child abuse scandal has made an attempt to avoid paying compensation.<br />
<br />
Sir Kevin Barron, MP for Rother Valley, John Healey, who represents Wentworth and Dearne, and Sarah Champion, MP for Rotherham, brought High Court proceedings against Jane Collins, MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.<br />
<br />
Their claim for slander and libel arose from a speech Ms Collins gave at Ukip's conference in September 2014 - a month after a report found that about 1,400 children in the area had been abused between 1997 and 2013.<br />
