The Duke of Sussex has lost an application to bring new allegations against Rupert Murdoch in his High Court hacking claim against the publisher of The Sun.

He was also denied a request to extend his claim by including allegations that date back to 1994.

And he was refused permission to include the names of some 150 private investigators, some of which had no specific claims made against them.

Barrister David Sherborne had sought to amend the claim against News Group Newspapers (NGN) to make specific allegations about the “destruction and concealment” of evidence by certain individuals.

His proposed updates including the naming of several journalists and senior executives, including Mr Murdoch.

But the judge said they added nothing to the allegations already made against other senior figures at NGN.

He also refused permission for allegations to be newly made against NGN’s Management and Standards Committee and those relating to the targeting of politicians.
