Jacqui Smith on life with paparazzi outside her home

Facing the TV and newspaper cameras outside her home while home secretary in the news was "just horrible", recalled Jacqui Smith.

She spoke about looking out of the window and wondering how she would get to her car outside. The former Labour MP said it was understandable why the media was there, but that "does not make it any nicer".

On a lighter note, she spoke to photographer Steve Back about how he snapped a teddy bear tucked into a seat in her ministerial car, after they watched a Daily Politics film on Westminster photographers catching political life on camera.
