Complainant Name:
Miss Heather Doran

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Miss Heather Doran complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the article had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant considered the article had failed to substantiate the claim that eating cake could lead to excess hair.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amending of the article to make clearer that the claim under contention had been made by an expert on hirsutism, and not by a nutritionist.
