Complainant Name:
Peter Bradley MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Express

Complaint:

Peter Bradley MP complained that an article whose headline suggested that a village in his constituency had been "invaded" by asylum seekers innacurately stated that a privately-run accommodation centre for asylum seekers was about to open in the village. In fact the proposals for the centre - which were subsequently rejected - had not even been considered by the Home Office when the article was published.

Resolution:

The newspaper published a clarification and a note of regret.

Report: 59
