Complainant Name:
Corby Borough Council

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Express

Complaint:

Councillor Pat Fawcett, Leader of the Council and Chris Mallender, Chief Executive of Corby Borough Council, complained that an article claiming that Corby was the ASBO capital of Britain contained a number of inaccuracies. In particular, the complainants emphasised that Corby had fewer ASBOs than neighbouring districts, and that the latest figures showed that fear of crime among residents had significantly dropped.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a positive feature about Corby, emphasising that the town was winning plaudits for its new civic centre, The Corby Cube, before it had been built.

Report: 76
