Complainant Name:
Lembit Opik MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Liverpool Daily Post


Lembit Opik MP complained that an article had inaccurately stated that he had jilted his former fiancée in favour of his current partner. He clarified that his former partner had in fact ended their relationship, a decision that had nothing to do with his subsequent relationship.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following apology:

Lembit Opik MP

In our January 2 report of the secret wedding of TV personality Sian Lloyd, it was wrongly stated that she had been jilted by her former fiancé, Lembit Opik MP. We are happy to set the record straight and apologise for any embarrassment caused.

Report: 77
