Mr Peter Walker of Southend-on-Sea complained that a newspaper article did not reflect the position of many local people, that a road-widening scheme would encroach on parkland. The piece also did not include a full account of his own perspective on the matter, as established in a press release.

The newspaper published a follow-up article which clarified that the precise area of the park was in dispute, and included further details from the complainants press release.
