Complainant Name:
Mr Steve Brookstein

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: London Lite


Steve Brookstein, the musician, complained that an article had inaccurately suggested that he had tried to use his fame to get his own way in a bar.


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

Oi, Steve's a real gent!

We're pleased to hear that Steve Brookstein is always welcome at the Park Tavern in Wandsworth. You might remember how we reported that our two guys at the bar thought that Steve was a tad rude when he and his mates wanted the TV channel changed back to the Spurs v Chelsea game that they were watching. The owner however tells us Steve didn't come over as anything other than a polite, regular bloke and there was no fuss at all. So we're sorry mate if we got the wrong impression.

Report: 75
