The BBC has been slammed for allegedly filming an obituary for Tony Blair.

A Labour Party source claimed that the corporation's tribute to the former Prime Minister was a "ghoulish" decision due to his age.

"It seems in pretty poor taste that the Beeb is already preparing for Tony's death," the insider told The Sun.

"He is still a relatively young man who I'm sure has got a lot of years left in him yet."

Now 58, Blair was the youngest Prime Minister in nearly two centuries when he was elected in 1997.

A BBC spokeswoman said: "We don't comment on obituaries."
