Complainant Name:
Ms Anna Morell

Clauses Noted: 1, 12

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Ms Anna Morell complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) and Clause 12 (Discrimination) of the Editors' Code of Practice, about an article which she considered to have misleadingly omitted reference to British female champions at Wimbledon during the last 77 years.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification, in print and online:

Following a picture caption on July 8, we are happy to clarify that, while Andy Murray is the first British men's Wimbledon champion for 77 years, four British women have won the title since 1926.
