Complainant Name:
Ms Kate Johns

Clauses Noted: 1, 2

Publication: Daily Mail


Ms Kate Johns complained to the Press Complaints Commission about two articles, which reported on court proceedings against her, which she considered to have contained inaccuracies in connection with her trial, including with regard to cosmetic surgery and the acquisition of certain assets.


The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated amendments to the articles online, and the publication of the following footnote:

An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Ms John's used bank fund to pay for cosmetic surgery and purchase diamond jewellery. We are happy to make clear that this was not the case.
