Harry Styles wins decision to stop paparazzi harassment

Harry Styles has won a court order which will stop paparazzi photographers from harassing him.

The One Direction star went to the High Court as a last resort after asking photographers to stop following him .

The court order stops paparazzi from chasing him, spying on him or loitering within 50 metres of where he is living.

His lawyer, David Sherborne, told the court "Mr Styles is not trying to prevent fans approaching him in the street and taking photos.

"He remains happy to do that, as he always has."

He added that it's "the method and tactics used by a certain type of photographer" that the court will not allow from now on.

Last month, bandmate Niall reported he had been "dragged to the floor by some idiot with a camera" at Los Angeles' LAX airport, adding: "I hate the paps!"
