Complaint:

Mr & Mrs P Wesley, Licensees of the Kilton Inn in Worksop, complained that an article was inaccurate when it stated that a man suffered stab wounds during an incident at the establishment.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction and apology in its next edition: “The Guardian would like to make it clear that an incident in which a man was assaulted did not happen at the Kilton Inn pub as reported last week. The incident actually occurred on Garside Street on the evening of Wednesday 29th March. Two men were involved and a 20-year-old man received a cut to his face and was taken to Rotherham Hospital for treatment. A man has been arrested in connection with the incident. The Guardian would like to apologise for any confusion our report caused”.

Report: 73
