WAG sues CPW for phone pic nick

Boob pic shocker

Top three mobile application threats

Glamour model Danielle Lloyd is suing Carphone Warehouse after a staff member downloaded pictures of her from her phone and tried to sell them to national newspapers.

Lloyd left her phone with the shop so that that data could be transferred to her new handset. But the staff member, who has since left the firm, copied intimate pictures of the glamour model.

The model is seeking £50,000 in damages from the High Street firm for mental distress and shock. Her lawyer told the Daily Mail: "The pictures were 'very private'". Lloyd discovered the pictures were being touted to newspapers last March.

Lloyd's first brush with fame was for losing her Miss Great Britain title when it emerged she had posed for Playboy and embarked on a relationship with Teddy Sheringham - one of the competition judges.

A spokesman for CPW said: "The download of customer content is entirely unacceptable and we can confirm that this content was not published.

"When the matter was brought to our attention we immediately conducted an investigation and the employee is no longer working within the business. Their actions are not indicative of our usual standard of service and we absolutely apologise to Ms Lloyd." ®
