Agent who worked with Linda McCartney and publisher of Katie Price autobiography told they may have been under surveillance
Peter Cox, who worked with the late Linda McCartney, and John Blake, who has worked with Katie Price and Jade Goody, have each been told by the police that they appear to have been targeted by illegal surveillance.
Cox told the Guardian he was "stunned" to learn from the Metropolitan police's Operation Weeting that someone had been eavesdropping on him: "It's a little like coming home to find your place has been burgled, the same sort of feeling, invasion of privacy. Unless it's actually happened to you, it's difficult to explain."
Angered by what he describes as a "violation", he added: "I'm quite interested in suing the hell out of them." Both men regularly worked on high-profile books. One project was particularly sensitive because it involved royalty, a source revealed.
