Ms Angela Climie complained on behalf of North Lanarkshire Council that an article was inaccurate in reporting that the Council was housing sex offenders from outwith its boundaries in return for cash grants from other local authorities.


The newspaper published the Councils denial of the claims and publicly withdrew the allegations, accepting that they had relied entirely on sources and that there was no evidence to substantiate the story. The newspaper also apologised for any distress its report may have caused to the residents of North Lanarkshire.

Report: 69
