Google responds to BBC blog removal

Google has started complying with a new controversial "right to be forgotten" ruling this week.

The company's head of communications for Europe and Africa, Peter Barron, told the BBC that Google was "aiming to deal with it as responsibly as possible".

BBC economics editor Robert Peston was notified that a blog post he had written in 2007 would be removed from appearing when a specific search was carried out on Google.

Mr Barron told Mr Peston that they would take on his feedback after he claimed his journalism was being "cast into oblivion".
