Andrew Trotter, Deputy Chief Constable of British Transport Police, succeeded in a libel complaint against the publisher of the West End Extra. The allegations, published on 14 October 2006, were completely false and a case of mistaken identity on the part of the relevant reporter. An unreserved apology was published in the West End Extra (described by Private Eye as the apology of the year) and damages were paid to charity.
