Complainant Name:
Mr Neil Lennon

Clauses Noted: 1, 3, 6

Publication: Scottish Sun


Mr Neil Lennon, Captain of Celtic Football Club, complained through Levy & McRae Solicitors of Glasgow that an article in relation to his personal life was inaccurate. The complainant was also concerned that a photograph of his son as well as private correspondence had been published without consent.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper sent a private letter of apology to the complainant in addition to publishing the following wording: On July 1 we published a picture of Neil Lennons son which accidentally identified him for which we apologise. We also accept Mr Lennon made unconditional payments of £26,000 to Jeniffer Jonson during her pregnancy and any suggestion he refused to give her any money is inaccurate. We are happy to set the record straight.

Report: 73
