Emma Woollcott comments on Sir Cliff Richard OBE -v- BBC

Emma Woollcott, Head of Reputation Protection, was quoted in the Times after Sir Cliff Richard won his privacy case against the BBC over its coverage of a police raid on his home.

Emma said that the judgment "vindicates Sir Cliff Richard's claim that the nature of the BBC's reporting and level of intrusion into his privacy were plainly excessive.

"The judge had acknowledged that there was a "very significant public interest" in reporting police investigations into historic sex abuse but criticised the BBC's style of reporting, which included footage from a helicopter circling Sir Cliff's house."
