EMI sue cleaners for binning Blur collection

A collection of Blur photographs and film footage valued at £170,000 was binned by cleaners working for EMI, and has resulted in a heavy lawsuit from the music giant.

The box labeled "Not Rubbish, Do Not Remove" was said to contain film from Blur's bestselling album, 'Parklife', plus rare images from The Beatles in their heyday.

Paul Postle, the official photographer who owned the material, took the photographs back in the mid nineties when Blur hit their peak during the Britpop era. He is said to be "dismayed at the loss of such an important collection" of which EMI agreed to look after on his behalf.
