Complainant Name:
Ms Tricia Penrose

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:
Ms Tricia Penrose, the actress, complained that the newspaper had inaccurately referred to an incident, in which an intruder entered her apartment at 5 am on New Year’s Eve. She made clear that she, her husband and child had been in bed when the incident happened; she had not just returned home to disturb the intruder and had not left her child with a childminder.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper – which had a source for the information in the article – offered to amend their records to ensure that the material would not be republished.

Report: 72
