Complainant Name:
Mrs Anne Tunnicliffe

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror


Mrs Anne Tunnicliffe complained on behalf of her brother Dickie Chipperfield that an article, describing a video of his training practices with lions and tigers, was inaccurate. She made clear that the manner in which he trained the animals was not violent or intimidating in the manner suggested by the article.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper, which considered that the article was supported by the video evidence, offered to publish a letter from the complainant, setting out her position on the training practices in question. The complainant did not take up the offer, as she did not want to excite further publicity.

Report: 67
