The Sunday Independent has terminated columnist Eoghan Harris's contract after it emerged that he was involved in the running of a fake Twitter account.

Harris confirmed using an account under the name Barbara J Pym, which the paper's editor described as "a betrayal of trust".

Twitter has since suspended a further eight accounts suspected of being connected to the Barbara J Pym account.

Ian Power and Breda Brown joined us for The Week Trending to discuss this and more of the stories making the news this week.
