In recent years he has taken an interest in Johnny Depp’s legal travails, covering the movie star's epic defamation action against The Sun newspaper at the High Court in London, before flying to Virginia in 2022 to report on Depp's case against his former wife, Amber Heard. In 2021 Nick published The Great Post Office Scandal: the fight to expose a multimillion pound IT disaster which put innocent people in jail and in May 2023 he will publish Depp v Heard: the unreal story.
