Complainant Name:
Katrina Lee

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Katrina Lee complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which wrongly stated that she had plastic surgery before competing on the X-Factor television show.

Resolution:

The newspaper said that as the article was almost eleven months old the most appropriate action would be to completely remove the online piece from its website. The article was taken down promptly and the complainant agreed that this represented a proportionate response to her concerns and was the outcome she had hoped for. The complaint was resolved on that basis.
