Complainant Name:
Ms Heather Mills

Clauses Noted: 1, 12

Publication: The Mail on Sunday


Ms Heather Mills complained that the newspaper had published an article that referred unfairly and misleadingly to her disability.


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

On July 5 we pictured Heather Mills climbing a ladder at the opening of her vegan cafe in Hove with the heading "What a difference a divorce makes!" We are happy to make clear Ms Mills did not attend at her divorce case in 2007 with walking aids to compound an image of disability. She was in pain from an operation and says amputees often suffer from changes in their residual limbs caused by weather variations or weight fluctuations. We apologise for any misunderstanding.
