News reel from the Profumo scandal that shook British politics – Daily Mail


Married Profumo (centre), the Conservative Secretary of State for War whose affair with 19-year-old model Christine Keeler brought down the Macmillan government, fled from the press to Avon Carrow, his family home in Stratford-on-Avon, after the scandal broke. He resigned in disgrace in 1963 when it emerged he had slept with Keeler, unaware she was also sleeping with Yevgeny Ivanov, a naval attaché at the Soviet Embassy, and reportedly a spy. Now the central part of Grade II-listed property, known as The Tower, has gone on sale with a £750,000 asking price.
