Donald Trump has failed in an attempt to bring a case in the UK courts against the former MI6 officer who wrote a dossier linking him to Russia.

He had been seeking to use data protection laws to sue Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd, the company run by Christopher Steele.

Mr Steele had compiled a dossier in 2016 which included allegations about Mr Trump.

This was leaked to the media just before he was sworn in as president.

Mr Trump had brought a data protection claim alleging the dossier contained allegations which were inaccurate and breached his data protection rights.

In a written ruling Mrs Justice Steyn DBE said the court did not make any judgement on the allegations themselves but found Mr Trump’s claim had not been brought within the six year limitation period.

A statement is expected from Mr Steele later today.
