Complainant Name:
Mr Anthony Richards

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Barking & Dagenham Post

Complaint:

Mr Anthony Richards of Barking complained that the newspaper had amended correspondence between him and the Trading Standards Department to suggest that he had submitted a readerís letter for publication.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to publish a clarification with the following wording: On 23 August, we published a letter from Anthony Richards of Wilmington Gardens, Barking on the topic of clothing collections. In fact, this was a letter written by Mr Richards to the Trading Standards Department of Barking and Dagenham Council, rather than submitted for publication as a reader's letter. We apologise for any misunderstanding.

Report: 74
