Complainant Name:
Mr P Stimpson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mirror

Complaint:
Mr P Stimpson, of Earls Colne, complained that an article inaccurately stated that he had demanded a £1m pay-off from his employers, Essex Police, following his suspension from his job. He also said it was likely to mislead readers into thinking he had taken on new employment as he was depicted doing building work.

Resolution:
The newspaper reported on the complainantís return to work and in doing so made clear that he had denied the £1m pay-off allegation and that the work he had been depicted doing in the original article had been on his own home.

Report: 57
