Reveal withdraws Coleen McLoughlin claims

Coleen McLoughin, the fiancé of England and Manchester United footballer Wayne Rooney, has complained over a story which claimed her parents had received death threats.

McLoughlin complained to the Press Complaints Commission over a story in Reveal magazine in its 25-31 August edition, which also said she was concerned about her security arrangements.

In a clarification, the magazine said: “We have been asked to point out that the parents of Coleen McLoughlin have not received any death threats.

“Ms McLoughlin is very happy with the arrangements in place to ensure the security of her and her family. We regret any distress caused and are happy to clarify this matter.”

In a separate complaint, Martyn Redman, the executive producer of Thumbs Up Television, complained to the PCC that the Daily Mail had inaccurately suggested he was involved in a romantic relationship with Cilla Black.

He said he had worked with Black for nearly 10 years and that the two were good friends.

The complaint was resolved when the Mail totally accepted Redman’s account of the friendship and said it “deeply regretted causing distress”.

The Mail made clear to the PCC that it would not run any future stories or features on the matter.
