Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard


A man complained that an article had misleadingly reported the allegations made against him in court.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper annotated its records to reflect that he was found not guilty of conspiracy to supply class A drugs and was not married to Nikki Granville.

The newspaper also annotated its records to reflect that the complainant denied the following: that he was involved in a drugs gang; that the date of the meeting with Macca was 14 July; that he and his brother were investigated by the Fraud squad after their company Landhurst went bust; that he had been disinherited; that his children were unplanned; that he raided his daughters piggy bank; that he had a close friend called Johnny Billing; and that he set up an advertising business which was then declared bankrupt.

Report: 74
