Publication: South Wales Argus


Councillor Robert C Bright, Leader of Newport City Council, complained that an article on food hygiene in Gwent was misleading and inaccurate.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction and apology: In an article highlighting the results of hygiene inspections of kitchens in some Gwent schools, printed on Wednesday May 24, we inadvertently included a photograph of the new St Joseph¹s RC School in Newport. We also reported the findings of an inspection which we stated had taken place last year. In fact the inspection had occurred two years earlier in the now demolished former St Joseph¹s RC School. We accept that St Joseph¹s RC School should not have been included and would like to apologise to the staff of the school and Newport Catering and to parents, for any distress caused.

Report: 73
