Catherine photo victory as royal tour continues

A court has banned a French magazine from re-publishing or distributing photographs in France of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless.

Closer magazine's publishers must hand over the original photographs within 24 hours or face a daily fine of 10,000 euros (£8,000).

The ruling came as Prince William and Catherine visited the South Pacific island state of Tuvalu as part of tour to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Nicholas Witchell reports.
