The Prime Minister today blasted the legally binding injunctions sought by high profile individuals to obscure their actions from traditional media outlets as 'unsustainable', and out of touch with modern media.

On ITV’s leading morning television programme, Daybreak, David Cameron said that the laws must ‘catch up with how people consume media today’.

Whilst acknowledging their legally binding nature, Cameron stopped short of encouraging alternative media outlets to flout the laws, though he acknowledged the need for a rethink of existing laws.

Often dubbed ‘gagging orders’, such privacy rulings have been increasingly the focus of mainstream media after a self styled ‘whistle blower’ attempted to out all celebrities masked by such orders.
