Complainant Name:
Mr Godfrey Bloom MEP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:
Mr Godfrey Bloom MEP complained through solicitors David Price Solicitors & Advocates that an article was inaccurate when it alleged that members of the Cambridge University Women’s Rugby Club claimed that he had assaulted them on a tour to Brussels. In fact, the claim – which the complainant vigorously denied – had been made by a single individual who was not a member of CUWRFC.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a statement from the CUWRFC which made clear that the club distanced itself from the claims of the individual and believed that the complainant behaved impeccably on the tour.

Report: 69
