Cheryl Cole has been granted the continuation of a court order preventing a campaign of harassment by paparazzi.

The 28-year-old Girls Aloud star was originally given the injunction against "XYZ and others" on June 15.

She was not at London's High Court today (Friday) for a brief unopposed public hearing at which her lawyer asked for it to carry on.

He said: "The persistent conduct directed against the claimant since the beginning of this year, particularly since May, is a clear case of harassment for which there is no reasonable justification.

"The claimant is not trying to prevent ANY photos being taken - especially by her fans - but to stop the extreme tactics of paparazzi, which have made her life fairly intolerable.

"Since legal proceedings started, the campaign has abated. Without an order though, it is clear that this campaign will resume."

Mr Justice Eady said: "For the same reasons as the last occasion, it seems an appropriate order for me to make and I continue it accordingly."
