The new president of the Law Society, Martin Mears, apologised yesterday for calling a fellow candidate "the most dangerous feminist in England".

In a letter to Eileen Pembridge, who opposed him for the position, Mr Mears said he was "dismayed" by the reporting of his comments, which he had intended to be "unambiguously complimentary".
