BLAIR'S MAN QUIZZED OVER DANDO MURDER.

THE Prime Minister's official spokesman was quizzed by police over the murder of TV presenter Jill Dando, it was revealed yesterday.

Alastair Campbell, one of Tony Blair's closest aides and friends, met officers so they could eliminate him from their inquiries.

He was interviewed after a newspaper wrongly claimed he had joked about being Jill's lover.

Campbell was never seriously suspected of gunning down Jill at her London home in April 1999 but officers felt obliged to interview him.

Campbell said he had met her when he reviewed the papers on her breakfast TV show.

He also said: "I believe the police had a number of calls pointing out my resemblance to their e-fit picture of the killer."
