Complainant Name:
Ms Fay Bevan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Sport

Complaint:

Ms Fay Bevan of Merthyr Tydfil complained that an article about her in the Sunday Sport was inaccurate in describing her sex life. She had given some information to the newspaper but it had made up additional details and presented them as if she had made the claims herself.

Resolution:

The newspaper acknowledged there had been a misunderstanding about the level of artistic license that was to be used by the newspaper; and it offered to publish a clarification. After direct discussions between the complainant and the newspaper, the former was offered a paid-for ‘page 3’ photoshoot.

Report: 76
