Complainant Name:
Mr Kevin Scott

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mirror

Complaint:
Mr Kevin Scott of Gateshead complained that an article was inaccurate in stating that he had been convicted of a racially motivated assault and of racial taunts. Neither conviction had a racial basis.

Resolution:
The newspaper pointed out that it had corrected the inaccuracy regarding the assault in a later edition of the same issue. It also agreed to amend its cuttings file to ensure that the position with regard to the complainantís other conviction (for using threatening words and behaviour) was corrected when the subject next became current.

Report: 58
