Johnny Depp arrives at court for start of libel case against The Sun over claims he beat his ex-wife

Johnny Depp has arrived at the High Court for the first day of his libel case against The Sun over allegations of domestic violence.

The 57-year-old actor is suing the tabloid’s publisher News Group Newspapers (NGN) over an article which called him a “wife beater” and referred to “overwhelming evidence” he attacked Amber Heard, 34, during their relationship, which he strenuously denies.

Mr Depp was wearing a face covering and sunglasses as walked into the main entrance of the Royal Courts of Justice in central London.
