Complainant Name:
Mr Christopher Speck

Publication: Manchester Evening News

Complaint:

Mr Christopher Speck of Manchester complained that an article about the development works on Canal Street showed an out-of-date artists impression of the building and did not reflect that it would be fourteen storeys high. The complainant also pointed out that the article inaccurately stated that the 70% of the site would be public open space, when in fact less than half the space would be open to the public.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a letter from the complainant in response to the article, alongside an up-to-date image.

Report: 74
