Sienna Miller wins privacy payout

Sienna Miller has settled her privacy action against the Sun and News of the World after securing a £37,500 payout from the papers' owners News Group Newspapers. She had sued them and the picture agency that supplied the intrusive photographs that were sneaked from a nude scene she had filmed for the movie 'Hippie Hippie Shake'. While she's settled with the tabs she's not finished with the photographer who took the actual snaps - a ruling is expected on this early next year.

The case is noteworthy as it is probably the largest settlement in relation to invasion of privacy based on purely the invasive element of the photograph itself as opposed to a photograph and its accompanying story (as in Campbell v Mirror).

It might help cover the cost of the necklace her boyfriend Rhys Ifans has supposedly bought her.
