The High Court has ruled that Sir Elton John was not defamed by The Times in a series of articles about tax avoidance.

The pop star had complained about two articles, on "The secrets of tax avoiders", published in June this year.

He said they implied he had been advised to engage in "immoral" schemes.

But Justice Tugendhat ruled that the pieces were not capable of being interpreted in that way, or of containing any other meaning defamatory to the Candle in the Wind singer.
