Miranda claims 'partial victory' in court

David Miranda's solicitor says he won a "partial victory" in court today by "stopping police in their tracks" in their efforts to use his data.

As a result of Miranda's limited injunction, police will not be able to use his data for their new criminal investigation.

Gwendolen Morgan also told reporters:

  • Police have seven days to prove the data poses a genuine threat to national security.
  • Miranda's property will be returned at midnight on Saturday.
