Johnny Depp has won his defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard, who he sued over claims of domestic abuse, according to the BBC.

The jury has found that Heard’s statements about her marriage were “false” and conveyed “a defamatory implication” to people other than Depp.

They also found she acted with “actual malice”.

The jury has awarded Depp $10m (£8m) in compensatory damages and $5m  (£4m) in punitive damages and has ruled that Heard’s defamation claims against Johnny Depp were unproven.
