Labour MP Siobhain McDonagh has given her reaction to accepting "very substantial" damages and a public apology from The Sun after her stolen mobile phone was accessed by the newspaper.
I'm in public life and I don't have a hang-up about my own privacy, but my family and constituents who had contacted me and given personal views were subjected to people seeing it. That made me feel very uneasy.
As an MP, people tell me all sorts of things, people give their personal information and they believe that you will do the right thing with it. That wasn't for anyone's eyes.
I was a government whip, I had lots of phone numbers and had then exposed all those people to having their privacy invaded, and that troubled me.
