Complainant Name:
David Blunkett MP

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: News of the World


The Rt. Hon. David Blunkett MP complained, through Bindman & Partners solicitors, that an article, alleging that he had been on dates with the actress Amanda Burton was both inaccurate and intrusive.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification: On July 2 2006 we published a story about David Blunkett having intimate dinners with Amanda Burton, the actress. In fact a third party was present at the first meeting and they did not carry on partying as we reported after the second. They are not close or romantically involved. We are happy to make this clear.

Report: 74
