Complainant Name:
Ms Frances Hunter

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Inverness Courier

Complaint:

Ms Frances Hunter of Inverness complained that the headline to an article had inaccurately claimed that she had been demoted from her position as assistant principal at Inverness College, when in fact her former position no longer existed.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the Editor agreed to meet the complainant and published the following clarification:

‘In the Inverness Courier of 23rd February, a headline stated that Frances Hunter had been demoted from her position as assistant principal at Inverness College. In fact Mrs Hunter's post was abolished in a management restructure. She continues to provide on-site assessment services to the college on a part-time, casual basis. We apologise for any confusion.’

Report: 75
