Complaint:

A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission that she had been misquoted in an article about the seasonal closure of Heather Mills' V-Bites restaurant. She said she had not been aware of the closure until informed by a journalist who approached her for comment - yet her reported remarks included a reference to how a third party felt about the situation.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the relevant quote from the online version of the article. The newspaper said the material had come from an agency reporter who no longer worked for the agency in question.
