The former boss of motorsports' international governing body told the Inquiry how a News of the World article in 2008 branded him a sexual pervert engaging in a Nazi-themed orgy had had an irreversible effect on his family, leading to his son suffering from depression and resuming drug use.
There was no truth in the Nazi slur and Mr Mosley took legal action against the former News International Sunday title and won £60,000 in damages, but he still said that privacy laws did nothing to protect victims because once the story was published, newspapers knew most legal action could not repair the damage and was only open to the rich.
Further, he highlighted how legal action can be ineffective when it comes to online news.
