Complainant Name:
A number of people

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:
A number of people complained that an article was inaccurate in its report of alleged racism among Millwall fans during a game.

Resolution:
After direct contact from Millwall FC, the newspaper published a follow-up article accepting that there was no evidence to prove that chants of ‘Sieg Heil’ had been made at the game and apologising to any fans who felt they had been wrongly labelled racists. The piece outlined the work carried out by the club to stamp out racism.

Report: 69
