Defamation-ITV

Mr Edward Sankey of Liverpool was innocently included in a programme on ITV.  “Fiddles, Cheats and Scams” was broadcast on the evening of the 26th October 2010.

Mr Sankey had been showed in the programme and on the ITV website, in a piece as to a scam involving “Con Men” selling forgeries of work by the artist known as “Banksy”.

Mr Sankey was shown by mistake and had nothing whatsoever to do with the subject matter of the programme.  Armstrongs sent a Defamation Protocol Letter of Claim and the matter was quickly settled with an agreed award of damages and payment of Mr Sankey’s legal costs.
