One Direction's Harry Styles has won permanent High Court orders against four members of the paparazzi in his legal battle to end the "crazy pursuit" of him.

The injunction prevents the photographers from pursuing the singer by car or motorcycle.

It also stops them from placing him under surveillance, loitering or waiting within 50 metres of his place of residence to monitor his movements or take photos of him.

His barrister told a judge in London today that four individuals had so far been identified since harassment proceedings were launched last year.

All four were handed permanent injunctions while efforts to identify others are ongoing.

In December, One Direction star Styles, now 20, went to court as a last resort after trying to persuade a number of photographers to stop their behaviour voluntarily.

Court grants Harry Styles protection from paparazzi

Singer Harry Styles has won a court order stopping the paparazzi from harassing him.

The 19-year-old One Direction star applied to the High Court as a last resort after trying to persuade a number of photographers to stop their behaviour voluntarily, said counsel David Sherborne.

He told Mrs Justice Nicola Davies, who first granted the order against the unidentified individuals: "This is not a privacy injunction. 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.

"Rather, it is the method or tactics which have been used by a certain type of photographer."

The injunction against "Paparazzi AAA and others" prevents them from pursuing the singer by car or motorcycle, placing him under surveillance, loitering or waiting within 50 metres of his place of residence to monitor his movements or take photos of him in such circumstances.

One Direction singer Harry Styles said he has no plans to follow his model friend Cara Delevigne onto the fashion catwalk because he struggles to walk in a straight line.

"I don't know if I can walk in a straight line that well," said Styles. "I might fumble around, so maybe not. Maybe I'll zig zag, or switch it up a little bit."

Styles, 19, was rumoured to be dating Delevigne, 21, after they were spotted together at several parties during London Fashion Week.

He turned out to watch Delivigne at the Burberry show where he was spotted sharing a joke with Sienna Miller and Paloma Faith on the front row of the show, but denied that he and Delevigne were an item.

"People talk about anything really, but we're just friends and stuff," he said. "She is a lovely girl."
