Complainant Name:
Jon Bond

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Express

Complaint:

Jon Bond, Chief Executive Officer of Tele-Traffic (UK) Ltd, complained that an article had inaccurately asserted that a laser gun supplied by his company had been withdrawn from service by the Kent police because it had failed to meet the minimum legal requirements.

Resolution:

The newspaper accepted that the product supplied by the complainantís company had not been withdrawn by the Kent police. The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following apology to the complainant:

Tele-Traffic (UK) Ltd

On October 11 we reported that Kent police had withdrawn as being defective LT1 20/20 laser guns which had been used to trap speeding drivers. We now accept that the devices in question were not LT1 20/20s and the devices did not fail to meet minimum legal requirements. We apologise to their manufacturer Tele-Traffic (UK) Ltd for our error.

Report: 76
