Daily Mail backsdown to JHL libel threat

Daily Mail backsdown to JHL libel threat

Dear Mr Hirst,

Thank you for your email.

We have amended the online article and appended a note at the bottom of the piece.

 "In an earlier version of this article we described Mr John Hirst as an 'axe murderer'. He was convicted of manslaughter after killing a woman with an axe".

Problem is that the libel remains!

Yes. That's closer to repetition than retraction.
