Lord Prescott criticises Sun for printing Harry pictures

Help

Former Deputy Prime Minister Lord Prescott has said the use of pictures of Prince Harry in The Sun newspaper was "utter contempt" and "clearly an interference of privacy".

Earlier, The Sun became the first British newspaper to publish the images.

The managing editor of the Sun, David Dinsmore, has said it would have been "perverse" not to publish photos of a naked Prince Harry taken in Las Vegas.

The Press Complaints Commission (PCC) said it had received 850 complaints about the images' use from the public, but none from St James's Palace.
