Complainant Name:
The actress Lucy Benjamin through Henri Brandman & Co.

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

The actress Lucy Benjamin complained, through Henri Brandman & Co. solicitors, that an article was inaccurate in its claims that at a dance event she had acted drunkenly, danced badly and tried to pursue another man. She maintained that she was not at all rowdy in the manner suggested by the article, and was with her boyfriend all that evening.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper, which had been able to provide a signed statement from a witness at the event, published a follow-up item making clear the complainants account of the evening in question and the current status of her relationship.

Report: 68
