Well this was well buried in the normal media:

European Court rejects Home Office appeal, Section 44 found illegal – British Journal of Photography.

Excellent news, and not a moment too soon considering the latest inane activities in Romford:

Young photojournalist detained for army cadet pics – British Journal of Photography.

I can only hope that the lack of a formal complaint to date is due to potentially deeper legal action based on the European Court ruling.
