Three leading businessmen are in a High Court battle over the control of three of London's most famous hotels.

Paddy McKillen, from Belfast, wants to block a "takeover plan" by twins Sir David and Sir Frederick Barclay.

All three entrepreneurs invested in Coroin, the company which owns the Connaught, Claridges and the Berkeley.

Mr McKillen claims that "company affairs" have been conducted in a "manner unfairly prejudicial to his interests" and wants damages.

Lawyers began outlining evidence to judge Mr Justice David Richards at the start of a High Court trial in London on Monday.

The Barclay brothers, who grew up in London, are contesting Mr McKillen's claims at a hearing expected to end next month.
