London, Mar 27 (ANI): British glamour model Danielle Lloyd is suing a phone company after it was discovered that one of its employers had allegedly downloaded explicit photos from her mobile.
Lloyd, 25, said that she had left her old phone at her local branch of Carphone Warehouse after buying a new one, so that data could be transferred.
As per a statement submitted in High Court, the former Miss England said that one of the staff viewed the images and made copies of them.
She is now suing Carphone Warehouse and employee Deepak Jagpal, who has been accused of taking copies of the pictures, including intimate surgery shots.
The incident took place last September, and the company said that it even apologized to Lloyd as soon as it came to know about it, and fired Jagpal.
"The download of customer content is entirely unacceptable and we can confirm that this content was not published," the Daily Express quoted a spokesman for the company as saying.
"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," he added.
Lloyd's writ makes a claim of up to 50,000 pounds for breach of contract, and invasion of privacy.(ANI)
