Complainant Name:
Mr B Vertigen

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Tamworth Herald

Complaint:
Mr B Vertigen of Warwickshire complained that a report of a local parish council meeting incorrectly stated that he had first said he had not seen plans for a proposed building and later said that he had seen them, thus apparently contradicting himself.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a clarification making clear that although the reporter stood by her recollection of what was said at the meeting, the official minutes, passed without dissent by the full council, supported the complainant's claims.

Report: 48
