BBC required to disclose information on journalistic source


Re: Sir Cliff Richard OBE v BBC & Anor [2017] EWHC 1291 (Ch)

The claimant sought a CPR Part 18 request however the BBC wished to decline this as it risked exposing a journalistic source, or otherwise required the disclosure of information about a source which it ought not to have to provide. The claimant’s application succeeded.

Gavin Millar QC was involved in this case.
