Mr Alan Sproat

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Edinburgh Evening News


Mr Alan Sproat of Edinburgh complained that an article inaccurately reported that, during a road rage incident, he had deliberately let go of his car door on another man breaking his leg.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended its records to reflect that the complainant had been convicted of reckless conduct in letting the door go and that it resulted in another man breaking his ankle.

Report: 74
