Complainant Name:
Mr Gary Gibson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Gary Gibson complained through Anne Woodcock & Co Solicitors that an article was inaccurate when it stated that he had pleaded guilty to over 400 domestic burglaries. In fact, all of the burglary offences he admitted were at unoccupied commercial premises.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification in its report of the complainant’s sentencing: ‘On August 9, the Daily Mail suggested Gibson had broken into homes. We are happy to make clear that all the burglary offences he committed were at unoccupied commercial premises.’

Report: 73
