Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Ron Henry, Mayor of Gila Bend, Arizona, complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article in which he was reported as having warned Prince Harry - who was then on a military posting to the town - ‘that some dads wouldn't take too kindly to him fornicating the night away'. The complaint denied that he had ever made such a statement.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper removed the article from the website and published the following online apology:

On November 7 an agency report stated that Ron Henry, Mayor of Gila Bend in Arizona, had warned Prince Harry, who was on a posting there, that "some dads wouldn't take too kindly to a Prince fornicating the night away". Mr Henry did not say this and we apologise to him.
