Cherie nanny war 'victory'.

Cherie Blair has settled her legal action against the publishers of the Mail on Sunday over the publication of material from an account of life in 10 Downing Street by the family's former nanny, it was disclosed today.

A statement issued by the Prime Minister's wife said that she and Associated Newspapers Ltd had agreed to resolve "amicably" her claim against the newspaper group.

Associated Newspapers has given permanent undertakings to the court not to publish or disclose any information obtained directly or indirectly from Ros Mark relating to the period she worked for the Blairs.

The undertakings do not cover any material published by other media after Mrs Blair first obtained injunctions against Associated Newspapers.

Mrs Blair, who claimed that the publication of the material in the Mail on Sunday breached a confidentiality agreement signed by Ms Mark, has already settled her claims against Ms Mark and the literary agent Jonathan Harris.

Her statement that she now had "all the assurance she needs that confidentiality agreements can protect the legitimate privacy of her and the Prime Minister's family life. This resolves the matter entirely to her satisfaction".
