Publication: The London Paper


David West, proprietor of Hey Jo nightclub in Mayfair, complained that an article had given a misleading impression of Hey-Jo by describing it as an erotic club. In fact, he clarified that Hey Jo was a state of the art nightclub.


The newspaper defended the description pointing to features of the club which it considered to be erotic. That notwithstanding, the newspaper agreed to put round a general notice to make clear that the club was not a lap-dancing club. The complaint was resolved on this basis.

Report: 76
