Complainant Name:
Ms Heather Mills

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Ms Heather Mills complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an opinion piece was inaccurate in claiming that, during preparations for the TV show ‘Dancing on Ice', she had skated with her prosthetic leg uncovered in order to gain sympathy. The reality was that she had rolled her trousers up during a private skating lesson (at which TV cameras were not present) so that her prosthetist could examine the alignment of her leg.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper agreed to remove the article from its website and sent a private letter of regret to the complainant.
