Media Statement from Karen Price:
“After a period of intense media attention and scrutiny of our family, I set up and used an anonymous Twitter account over the weekend and made a number of comments that I deeply regret.
“Our family has been under intense media pressure since the election. My actions were ill-judged and were the result of extreme frustration and trying to look after my husband and family.
“David had absolutely no knowledge of the account until a media outlet raised it with him on Tuesday light.
“The account is now closed and I apologise to all those I have offended in any way. I will be taking a short break and will not be commenting further.”
