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.
