European Court to rule on Max Mosley privacy laws call

Judges in Strasbourg are due to rule on ex-motorsports boss Max Mosley's bid to force newspapers to notify people before exposing their private lives.

In 2008, the UK High Court ruled the News of the World invaded his right to privacy by reporting on his sex life.

Mr Mosley says financial damages could not restore his reputation and has taken his call for "prior notification" to the European Court of Human Rights.

A victory could lead to new UK privacy laws, which newspaper bosses oppose.

Matt Prodger reports.
