Tara Conlon reports:

Twitter users who breach privacy injunctions could face legal action for contempt of court, the attorney general has warned.


In a pre-recorded interview for Radio 4’s Law in Action, which will be broadcast on Tuesday, Grieve said that while it is usually up to those who have taken out injunctions to enforce them he will take action himself, although it is not something he particularly wants to do.

Grieve said: “I will take action if I think that my intervention is necessary in the public interest, to maintain the rule of law, proportionate and will achieve an end of upholding the rule of law. It is not something, however, I particularly want to do.”
