A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately stated that David Cameron had made reference to a "2.5 billion" donation to the Liberal Democrats.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated publication of the following correction:

IN our report on the first leadership debate on April 16, we said that David Cameron had referred to millionaire Michael Brown having donated '2.5 billion' to the Liberal Democrats. The actual figure - as stated by Mr Cameron - was 2.5million.
