Actor Ewan McGregor has successfully won an injunction to stop an agency re-printing pictures of his two children taken on holiday in Mauritius.

The Scot sought the action against French picture agency Eliot Press, which did not defend the action.
The judge said he would decide on damages for breach of confidence and invasion of privacy at a later date.
Another agency, Fraser Woodward, is defending the original publication of the Dec 2002 photos.
The pictures were taken during a family holiday.
McGregor recently launched a blistering verbal attack on the paparazzi, saying: "They shouldn't be shot, but they should be severely beaten up."
He saved particular venom for celebrity magazine Heat, after it published pictures of his daughter Esther Rose, calling it "filthy".
He took legal action after a general request not to publish pictures of his children were ignored by the media.
McGregor's solicitor Mark Thomson, of Carter-Ruck and Partners, said the action was taken against Eliot Press and Fraser Woodward, which acted as a broker for the pictures.
The injunction prevents Eliot Press from publishing the holiday photos and any similar pictures of the children.
Fraser Woodward, owned by paparazzi photographer Jason Fraser, is contesting claims of breach of privacy under the Data Protection Act.
