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.
