Subject: STRICTLY PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL: The wife and children of Glenn Mulcaire
PRIVATE & CONFIDENTIAL; NOT FOR PUBLICATION
The Commission has this afternoon been contacted by Sarah Webb, a representative of the wife of Glenn Mulcaire. As you will see, Ms Webb has said that a number of representatives of the media are at the family home. Mr Mulcaire is not at the home. Mrs Mulcaire and the children are distressed by the attention and have asked that the PCC make editors aware of their request that journalists should leave the area. Ms Webb states that press enquiries relating to Mr Mulcaire should be directed to her at the email address provided.
We are happy to make editors aware of the position. Please feel free to give me a call to discuss any Code issues.

I act for the wife of Glenn Mulcaire.
As you know, Mr Mulcaire is the subject of considerable news attention today. At the moment, his house is being besieged by press. He is not at home. His wife and children (who are under the age of 18) are in the home. They are distressed by the presence of large numbers of reporters and photographers, which has stopped them from entering or leaving the home.
Mrs Mulcaire and her children do not wish to speak to the press; they have not been involved in any way in allegations of phone hacking. I would be grateful if you could make clear our request to editors, in line with Clause 4 (Harassment) of the Editors’ Code, that their representatives leave the area of the home. Media enquiries regarding Mr Mulcaire should be directed to me at the email address above.
