The former Formula One supremo Max Mosley has reiterated his call for the newspapers to notify those involved before publishing allegations about them.

Mr Mosley, who won £60,000 in damages from the News of the World after it alleged he had been involved in a "Nazi orgy" is to deliver a speech on whether the press should be allowed to publish details of a public figure's private life.

Interviewed by Today presenter John Humphrys, Mr Mosley said that individuals should have a "right to notification" before any allegations are printed about them "so that if you wish you can go to a judge and if you can convince the judge he'd stop publication.

"But its a very hard task to convince a judge because you have to show you are likely to win the ultimate case."

And Mr Mosley added that there was "no public interest" in the publication of allegations about the private life of the England football captain, John Terry.
