Peaches Geldof sues Star over prostitute slur

Peaches Geldof has issued proceedings against the Daily Star after the paper published a less than adequate apology for suggesting she'd received cash for sex.

The issue of papers printing apologies and retractions that are as prominent as the original offending articles has been debated by the PCC and news editors. Claimant solicitors are pushing for front page apologies - so far these have been very rare - Geri Halliwell got one as did Miss Dynamite (mediabeak suspects Peaches may have got hold of their lawyer, Jonathan Coad, to go after the Daily Star). More analysis to follow.
