Deirdre Rachid, the famous 'Dear Deirdre' agony aunt of downmarket tabloid 'The Sun' has admitted losing a memory stick containing the personal problems of thousands of readers. Names and addresses were included in the data and it is thought to be worth over £10,000 on the black market.
A spokesman for The Sun said ' Although every care is taken to criticise anyone else this has happened to, it is not in our best interest to cause alarm to our readers and draw attention to this kind of thing. I am sure that the erection problems of Brian Davies of Sydenham and the funny shaped breasts of Julei Moult of Peckham will remain anonymous.'
Deirdre herself was unavailable for comment as tonight is her swingers night.
