BBC loses court fight over The Stig book

The BBC has lost a legal fight to stop publication of a book which claims to reveal the identity of Top Gear's driver The Stig.

The High Court in London refused to grant the broadcaster an injunction which would block the publication by HarperCollins of an autobiography of former Formula Three driver Ben Collins.

It suggests Mr Collins is the mysterious driver who tests high-performance cars on the BBC Two show.
