Complainant Name:
Miss Louise Pyne

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Guardian

Complaint:

Miss Louise Pyne complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article was misleading when it suggested that she had asked the television presenter Miriam O'Reilly "Is it time for botox?".

Resolution:

The newspaper made clear that the information had been taken from a witness statement. Nonetheless, the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the addition of the following statement to the online article:

Louise Pyne has asked us to clarify that the reported conversation with Miriam O'Reilly was one between friends; she did not say the presenter should have Botox.
