Complainant Name:
Mr Neil Lennon

Clauses Noted: 1, 3, 6

Publication: Scottish Sun

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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 Lennon’s 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
