June 2016: List of BBC web pages which have been removed from Google's search results

Managing Editor, BBC Online

Since a European Court of Justice ruling in 2014, individuals have the right to request that search engines remove certain web pages from their search results. Those pages usually contain personal information about individuals.

Following the ruling, Google removed a large number of links from certain search results, including some to BBC web pages, and continues to delist BBC Online pages from some search results. These pages are not removed from the Google index entirely, or from BBC Online.

As a contribution to public policy and debate, the BBC has decided to make clear to licence fee payers which pages have been impacted by publishing this list of links.

Each month, we’ll update the list, with the latest removals added at the top. Removals made in 2016 are listed below and those made in 2014 and 2015 can be found here.

You can also find out more about the BBC’s archive policies in my first blog post on this topic published in June 2015.

One important caveat: when looking through this list it is worth noting that we are not told who has requested the delisting, and we should not leap to conclusions as to who is responsible. The request may not have come from the obvious subject of a story.
