Complainant Name:
Mr J Stenchion

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Oldham Evening Chronicle

Mr J Stenchion complained on behalf of his nephew Stephen Walsh that the newspaper had inaccurately reported the latters trial for affray (following an incident involving white youths causing trouble in the Asian community) by emphasising the racial aspect to the offence.

The newspaper published a correction and apology, making clear that the charges alleging racially aggravated damage of property were withdrawn.

Report: 63
