Complainant Name:
Mr Tristan Greville

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Cornish Guardian

Complaint:

Mr Tristan Greville of Polperro complained that an article which referred to an image he had taken while at sea contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification and apology:

“Our article published on August 15 entitled ‘Fresh photos of shark are totally dismissed by experts’ referred to a story that appeared in The Sun newspaper, with an image sent in by Polperro trawlerman Tristan Greville. We wish to point out Mr Greville took only one of the images published, that of the shark’s fin. We wish to clarify that the image was taken off the coast of Polperro during a fishing trip in May and that a marine expert quoted in the story agreed he was unsure what the photograph showed. We are happy to make this clear and apologise for any confusion which may have been caused”.

Report: 76
