NewsPics, the company run by photographer Matt Sprake and his wife, is to be wound up after it failed to pay Exaro and my legal costs now totalling £24,000. The decision was taken by a registrar in the High Court yesterday. There is a full report on the Exaro News website and an item in the Guardian Diary about the present situation. A receiver will be appointed in due course to distribute the firm’s assets.
There is also a report on the UK Press Gazette site of the hearing.
