Last month the 19-year-old One Direction star went to London's High Court as a last resort after trying to persuade a number of photographers to stop their behaviour.

On that occasion, counsel David Sherborne told Mrs Justice Nicola Davies that it was not a privacy injunction.

"Mr Styles is not trying to prevent fans approaching him in the street and taking photos. He remains happy to do that, as he always has. Rather, it is the method or tactics which have been used by a certain type of photographer."

The injunction against the unnamed individuals -- "Paparazzi AAA and others" -- prevents them from pursuing the singer by car or motorcycle, placing him under surveillance, loitering or waiting within 50 metres of his place of residence to monitor his movements or take photos.

The judge scheduled another hearing for March 10 which will decide how to proceed.
