Let us name super-injunction football star, say English newspapers

English newspapers are expected to return to the High Court later today to try to have a super-injunction taken out by a football star lifted.

His name and a photograph were published in a Scottish newspaper, the Sunday Herald, which claimed that the gagging order did not apply in Scotland.

It is ridiculous that, via the internet, everyone in the world seems to know the identity of the footballer who had an alleged affair with Big Brother's Imogen Thomas, but English papers are still prevented from publishing it.
