Irish singing star Andrea Corr has called in her lawyers to deal with allegations she slept with an army major accused of sexually harassing women.

The DREAMS musician is furious after being named in British newspaper THE DAILY TELEGRAPH in evidence given by the major in his testimony at an employment tribunal.

However, calls for the newspaper to publish a retraction to the allegations have come up against a sticking point.

The paper says it is allowed to repeat the allegation under "qualified privilege" as it was taken from a legal document placed before an employment tribunal.
