A superinjunction preventing news organisations from naming Take That singer Howard Donald has been lifted, according to reports. The injunction had been granted earlier this year by Mr Justice Eady, but was lifted today by the court of appeal.
The lifting of the superinjunction means that the media can now report the claimant, Donald, in the case.
An order banning former girlfriend Adakini Ntuli from selling her story is still in place.
