Complainant Name:
Ms Jan Hamilton

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Jan Hamilton of Lancashire complained that an article reporting on her successful gender discrimination case against the army contained inaccuracies.


The newspaper published the following clarification on its website:

Jan Hamilton: An article on 31 May may have suggested that Jan Hamilton had sought £250k for hurt feelings in her industrial action against the MoD. We are happy to clarify that Ms Hamilton neither sought nor received £250k for hurt feelings.

In addition, the newspaper removed the article from its website, marked the newspapers cuttings and made a donation to a service charity. The complaint was resolved on that basis.
