Complainant Name:
The family of Leslie Grantham

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

The family of the actor Leslie Grantham complained, through Swan Turton solicitors, that an article – which claimed that Mr Grantham had been “booted out” of his home by his wife and children – was inaccurate. The article also wrongly claimed that Mr Grantham was missing at the time of publication.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following apology:

“Further to our article of November 6 we are happy to make clear on behalf of Leslie Grantham, his wife Jane and their sons Michael, Jake and Danny that he was not ‘booted out’ of the family home by them and was not ‘missing’ at the time of publication. Mr Grantham had been touring the country promoting his autobiography and remains at the family home. We regret any distress caused to the Granthams by our article.”

Report: 74
