Ex-Blunkett aide Doyle in No 10 job

Matthew Doyle, the former press aide to fallen minister David Blunkett, has re-emerged as special comms adviser at Number 10.

The role involves media handling and liaison with the press lobby in Parliament, reporting to director of comms David Hill. 

Doyle found himself out of work when Blunkett last month resigned from the Cabinet for the second time  (PRWeek, 10 November).

Anna Turley, another Blunkett adviser, has moved with the Labour MP for Sheffield Brightside as a senior parliamentary assistant. She will handle press enquiries for Blunkett.
