Chris Blackhurst: 'Harry photos were private'


Many millions of people have seen the naked pictures of Prince Harry on the internet. Why, says The Sun, should it not print them?

The Sun insist they are not against Prince Harry and for them it is an issue of press freedom.

Louise Mensch, MP, believes the Sun did the right thing and that "the Press Complaints Commission totally overstepped their bounds."

Editor of the Independent, Chris Blackhurst, says the PCC was warning people not to publish, as was the Palace.

"I took the view that these were private photographs... for me it was a straight issue of privacy," and he decided not to print them.
