Complaint:

Mr Graham Worthington of Surrey complained that the newspaper had inaccurately claimed that two policemen, who were cited in the Stephen Lawrence inquiry, served at the East Dulwich Police Station, at which he had been a Detective Inspector. The newspaper had also inaccurately claimed that the station was "notoriously corrupt".

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved directly between the two parties, before a PCC investigation, when the newspaper published a correction and apology.
