The ICO has ordered Google Inc. to remove nine search results following their ruling that these results were no longer relevant to the individual they were linked to. The links included details of a minor criminal offence committed by the individual almost 10 years ago.

The ICO ruling recognised that the journalistic content relating to decisions to delist search results, although newsworthy and in the public interest, has an unwarranted and negative impact on the individual’s privacy and is a breach of the Data Protection Act.
