Complainant Name:
Mr Christopher Bulmer

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Sport

Complaint:

Mr Christopher Bulmer complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had incorrectly claimed that Derrick Bird had met "twin ladyboy hookers" at his bar, "Spicey Girls A Go Go", in Pattaya Beach, Thailand. While Derrick Bird had been a customer, no ladyboys worked in or visited his bar.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to publish the following correction:

On 6 March we published a story "Birdy and the chickboy twins", in which we reported that Derrick Bird met twin ladyboy hookers in the "Spicy Girls A Go Go" bar in the sex resort of Pattaya Beach, Thailand, accompanied by a photograph of the bar. While Derrick Bird was a visitor to this bar, we are happy to make clear that he did not meet the twins in "Spicy Girls A Go Go". We apologise for this error.
