Inside Cherie's Bristol flats
Flat similar to one bought by Cherie Blair
The flats are described as 'penthouses'
The Prime Minister's wife, Cherie Blair, is under fire after admitting she bought two flats with the help of convicted fraudster Peter Foster.

Panoramic flat development, Bristol
The Panoramic development is close to the University
Downing Street had previously denied any involvement with Mr Foster.

Mrs Blair insists she has done nothing wrong and had not been aware of Mr Foster's past.

The flats are situated in a new development in the Clifton area of Bristol.

According to the developers, the Panoramic apartments have "sensational far reaching views across the docks, the city and towards the Mendip Hills".

The Kitchen
The flats have fully fitted kitchens
The flats overlook the city's cathedral and, according to the developers "are within easy walking distance" of the university.

They have secure parking with video entry phones, fitted kitchen with a "retro style" fridge freezer and wiring for surround sound systems in the bedrooms.

According to estate agents Edward Ware Homes the apartments boast an "impeccable specification with light and spacious living accommodation combined with sleek contemporary interiors".

Prices start at 268,995, according to the estate agent's web site.

Mrs Blair said that during initial discussions, before Mr Foster's direct involvement, she secured a drop in the purchase price of the flats from 295,000 each to 269,000 each.
