Max Mosley: the cost of fighting the tabloids

The former Formula 1 chief Max Mosley has said he felt compelled to fight untrue stories written about him, since he was one of the rare people who could afford to.

Speaking at the Leveson inquiry into media ethics, Mr Mosely said he knew that going to court posed large risks to his reputation and finances - but he said: "If I don't do it, I don't know who's going to."
