Complainant Name:
Mr Aaron Lennon

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Mr Aaron Lennon, the Tottenham Hotspur footballer, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article about his alleged actions in a London nightclub was inaccurate and misleading.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the original article from the newspaper's website, a donation to charity and the publication of the following apology, in the newspaper and online:

Further to our article of March 15 ("Keep your Aaron") about Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon in a London nightclub, we would like to make clear Mr Lennon did not approach any strangers in the club, nor did he spend anywhere near the £15,000 we reported. We apologise to Mr Lennon and are happy to clarify the matter.
