Complainant Name:
The Rt Hon David Blunkett MP

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Daily Mirror


The Rt Hon David Blunkett MP complained to the Press Complaints Commission that a story about his former grace-and-favour home inaccurately and irrelevantly referred to historical information about his private life (specifically, his relationship with Kimberly Quinn).


The newspaper said that the information about the complainant's past was all well-known and its republication was not an invasion of his privacy. The article was entirely accurate. The complainant subsequently contacted the newspaper directly and the matter was resolved privately between the parties.
