Complainant Name:
Ms Polly High

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Sport

Complaint:

Ms Polly High of Herne Bay complained that an article which claimed that she had been fined for hosting a "Slag Party" contained a number of inaccuracies.

Resolution:

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

Our article of 8 August stated that Polly High, a cabinetmaker from Herne Bay, had been fined a fixed penalty of £80 after refusing to take down "saucy posters" advertising a "Slag Party" in her front window. Ms High - who strongly denied that the images were inappropriate - did not pay the fine and was intending to plead not guilty to the charges before the case was dismissed at Canterbury Magistrates Court on 11 November. We are happy to make this clear to readers and apologise to Polly High for any upset we have caused.
