In 1996, Clifford brokered a £50,000 deal between Allwood and the News of the World.

According to Allwood, Clifford went on to negotiate a separate £15,000 deal for himself. Allwood sued Clifford, claiming that he had secretly profited from her story.

Judge Justice Park ruled that her claim had succeeded to the total of £15,200, but he also upheld a counter claim against Allwood for £4,970 in unpaid fees.

Allwood had originally claimed for hundreds of thousands of pounds when she first brought the action in 1997, but her claim was limited to £16,000 in pre-trial hearings.
