Associated Newspapers says Prince Harry and other accusers are 'out of time'

The law requires that claims are brought within six years.

But some of the allegations against Associated date back decades.

Lawyers for the claimants - also including Sir Elton John and Baroness Doreen Lawrence - argue that new evidence has recently come to light.

The newspaper publisher said "they haven't come close" to proving that only now could they sue the Mail and Mail on Sunday.
