Complainant Name:
Ms Helen Flanagan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Ms Helen Flanagan, an actress who appears on the television show Coronation Street, complained that an article inaccurately reported that she was dating the footballer Micah Richards.

Resolution:

The newspaper noted that similar reports had appeared some months previously and that they had not, apparently, been challenged formally. Nonetheless, in light of the complainants assurances that she was not dating Micah Richards, it agreed to remove the article from its website and place a note on its internal archives making clear her position.

Report: 77
