McFadden is using over a story headed ‘Sarge n’ WPC got randy in a Panda”, published in The Sun in July 2006, which he claims was defamatory.
McFadden is demanding unlimited and aggravated damages over the story, and over a website version. He also seeks an injunction banning repetition of the allegations at the centre of his claim. The writ was issued by solicitors Pattinson and Brewer.
