In an article on 26 May 2006 (“I’m looking forward to a naked summer“) about the unsuccessful prosecution of Lyneth Burgess for indecent exposure, we reported that her neighbour, Morien Jones, had rushed to video her sunbathing naked in her back garden and commented that one might think it should have been him, rather than Ms Burgess, who was prosecuted. In fact, the film, which was taken by Mr Jones’s builder and not Mr Jones, and on police advice, showed her walking naked not on her own property but in front of Mr Jones’s house on the driveway she shared with him. We apologise to Mr Jones for the distress and embarrassment caused to him by any misleading impression that has been given. We have agreed to pay him damages and his legal costs.'
