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.
