Bang goes my gun licence, says Cara’s father after ‘bit of a cock-up’
THE aristocrat father of Cara Delevingne is fighting a police decision to take away his firearms licence, the Standard has learned. Charles Delevingne, 72, pictured with his daughter, was stripped of his right after a decision by Scotland Yard’s firearms command which manages legal gun possession across the capital. However, the property developer has lodged an appeal against the decision, sparking a showdown with the police at Inner London crown court. Mr Delevingne is the father of three daughters — Chloe, actress and model Poppy, and Carnival Row star and supermodel Cara — and he also has a son, Alexander Jaffe, from a previous marriage. He told the Standard the decision on his gun licence was a “bit of a cock-up” but declined to comment on the specifics of the case before it has been heard in court. “The police have revoked my gun licence, that’s true,” he said. The Met Police declined to comment on the decision against Mr Delevingne or the pending appeal. A hearing date has not been set.
