Complainant Name:
David West

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent

Complaint:

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-themed”. He raised concerns that readers may have been misled to believe that it was a lap-dancing club, which it was not. In fact, he clarified that Hey Jo was a state of the art nightclub.

Resolution:

The newspaper defended the description of Hey Jo by pointing to features of the club that it considered to be erotic. The complainant accepted the newspaper’s explanation and the complaint was resolved on this basis.

Report: 76
