Complainant Name:
Mr P Stimpson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Braintree and Witham Times

Complaint:
Mr P Stimpson, of Earls Colne, complained that an article was misleading in stating that the newspaper had been unable to contact him for comment on allegations that he had demanded a £1m pay-off from Essex Police following his suspension from the force. He claimed that he had been available had he been contacted at his home.

Resolution:
The newspaper acknowledged that it had not attempted to contact Mr Stimpson at his home because it thought he had moved house. Arrangements were made to have the story amended in the newspaper’s cuttings archive and removed from the website archive.

Report: 57
