Actress Sienna Miller has won a High Court privacy case against a photographer who took nude pictures of her without her consent.

The judge granted a default judgement and a permanent injunction against photographer Warren Richardson.

The photos were taken while Ms Miller was filming Hippie Hippie Shake, based on the memoirs of Richard Neville, who edited counterculture magazine Oz.

Mr Richardson said he would agree not to use the still images.

Any damages will be decided at a later date and Mr Richardson was ordered to pay costs.

Long lens

Ms Miller's lawyer, David Sherborne, told Mr Justice Eady in London that the actress - currently abroad - was "extremely distressed" by the incident which happened on a closed film set on a private estate in Surrey.

The "highly intrusive" pictures were taken using a long lens while Ms Miller was removing her clothes and entering a lake.

Mr Richardson then provided the photographs to the Xposure Photo Agency.

Ms Miller had already settled a case against Xposure and The Sun and the News of the World, which printed the photographs.

News Group Newspapers, along with Xposure, had to pay the actress 37,500 in damages, plus legal costs, after the pictures were printed in October.

Hippie Hippie Shake is due for release later this year.

Cillian Murphy plays Neville, while Ms Miller stars as his girlfriend Louise Ferrier.
