News Kanye West is a suspect in another battery investigation after he allegedly punched an 18-year-old boy for hurling racial abuse at his fiancée, Kim Kardashian.

Alcohol and speed killed Diana, not paparazzi

A fatal combination of alcohol and speed, and not the paparazzi, were responsible for the crash which killed Diana, Princess of Wales, sources close to the French police investigation said yesterday.

Press code aims to outlaw paparazzi pictures

New restrictions should put a stop to the sort of intrusive photography endured by the Princess of Wales. Paul McCann, Media Correspondent, looks at the problems of putting them into practice.

Media: Wakeham promises tough new privacy rules

Lord Wakeham has promised that the Press Complaints Commission's new code will impose the toughest restrictions on newspaper behaviour, writes Paul McCann.

Letter: The press, not the Royals, hounded Diana

I object strongly to the way in which your article ("A day of emotion", 7 September) manipulated Earl Spencer's funeral address to make out it did something it didn't. It was not "a devastating attack on the Royal Family". The example given is that of the "anguish" Diana suffered. But this refers to the hounding she received from the press. Your writers show they knew perfectly well what he meant after he promised to "shield the princes from the paparazzi".

Editors fall out over privacy vow

The unity among newspaper editors about how to cover the Royal Family after the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, fell apart yesterday when the editor of the Daily Telegraph described the Daily Mail as "disgusting".

More newspapers pledge royal privacy

A new era in relations between newspapers and the Royal Family seemed likely yesterday, following Earl Spencer's stinging attack on the press in his eulogy at Saturday's funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales.

Pictures worth taking

No snatch pictures of celebrities can be seen at the ninth Festival of Photojournalism being held at Perpignan in south-west France, which ends on Sunday. This is a meeting place for true believers in photojournalism, for practitioners who situate themselves on the line that began with Fenton's pictures of the Crimean war and runs through Cartier-Bresson to Don McCullin (who has an exhibition opening at the Barbican in London this week) and onwards. The young photographers who tour the cafe tables in Perpignan looking for picture editors to whom they can show their work have been shooting in slums rather than in Mayfair, in Kabul rather than Paris; they have been taking pictures of tanks, not of chauffeur-driven limousines.
