Mr James Smith

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Record

Mr James Smith of HMP Peterhead complained that the newspaper had inaccurately suggested that he had been reunited in prison with Thomas McCulloch, the man with whom he was convicted of murder. He also denied that the two men shared identical dressing gowns and questioned the newspapers description of his crime.

The newspaper amended its records to reflect the complainants denial of the first two points.
