Singer Cliff Richard has won his High Court privacy case against the BBC over its coverage of a police raid on his home.
High Court judge Justice Anthony Mann said the BBC had infringed Sir Cliff's privacy rights "without a legal justification" and in a "serious" and "sensationalist" way.
The BBC said journalists acted in good faith and it is considering an appeal.
He has been awarded £210,000 in damages, but a judge ruled that he is entitled to further sums to be decided at a later date.
The broadcaster used helicopters to film detectives searching the home of Richard, 77, one of Britain's best known entertainers, when he was away on holiday in August 2014 as part of an investigation into allegations of historical child sex offences.

I don't know how they are going to do it, but they'll have to. If heads roll then maybe it's because it was deserved.It's too big a decision to be made badly.
Lawyer Emma Woollcott with the firm Mishcon de Reya said the judgment "vindicates" Richard's view that the BBC's reporting was intrusive.
"It means police investigations, and searches of people's homes, could go unreported and unscrutinized".
He has, however, limited the damage, unlike last year's runner-up Rigoberto Uran , who lost 1:28 on Sunday after crashing. The 67-mile stage starts in the 1992 Winter Olympic host Albertville and includes two beyond-category climbs.
