Complainant Name:
Mr David Wolstencroft

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Financial Times


Mr David Wolstencroft complained, through Swan Turton solicitors, that the newspaper had inaccurately said that he was the co-creator of the television series Spooks.


The complaint was resolved directly between the parties when the newspaper published the following correction:

An article on October 17 entitled "The appeal of Spooks" should have referred to David Wolstencroft - who developed the idea, the characters and the basic plot of the television series - as the show's sole creator. We are happy to make this correction.
