Complainant Name:
Lembit Opik MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Lembit Opik MP complained that an article was inaccurate in two ways: first, that it stated he had broken off his engagement to his former partner; and second, that he had left her for another woman.


The complaint was resolved directly between the newspaper and the complainant when the newspaper published the following apology:


We have been asked to make clear that contrary to our report on Monday, Lib Dem MP Lembit Opiks engagement to TV weathergirl Sian Lloyd was ended by her before he started his relationship with Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia. Our apologies to Lembit and Gaby for the mistake.

Report: 76
