The former Sonia Sutcliffe

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror


The former Sonia Sutcliffe complained that articles were inaccurate in suggesting that her former husband, Peter Sutcliffe, had asked her to remarry him and that she had persuaded him to end a hunger strike.

The newspaper published a statement which read as follows: "We have been asked by the former Sonia Sutcliffe the ex-wife of Peter Sutcliffe to make clear that she did not persuade her ex-husband to end a hunger strike during an emotional phone call (reports, 4 August and 23 September). She has also informed us that Peter Sutcliffe has not proposed to her again, as we reported on 10 October."
