Army Major wins Express libel


A top-ranking army officer has accepted undisclosed libel damages and a public apology at London's High Court over a Daily Express story which said he had quit his job at Sandhurst because of stress arising out of the arrival there of Princes William and Harry. The article, headed "Sandhurst Chief Quits Job After Stress", appeared on 17 April last year.

Solicitor Louise Prince said the allegations in respect of Major General Andrew Ritchie were "completely untrue and without any foundation whatsoever".

She said the actual position was that Ritchie had neither quit his job at Sandhurst nor had he been suffering from stress.
