Guardian makes offer of amends over Tesco tax story

The Guardian has admitted its story in February about Tesco’s tax affairs was defamatory, and has made a formal offer of amends to the supermarket giant.

But the newspaper has said it will “strenuously defend” Tesco’s ongoing attempts to sue for malicious falsehood.

In a letter to Tesco’s lawyers, Carter Ruck, the Guardian offered to publish a correction and apology, and pay compensation and costs.

It had already published a correction and a revised story earlier this month in a bid to set the record straight, but Tesco is reported to have sent a letter to the newspaper earlier this week demanding a more prominent apology.
