Complainant Name:
Ms Sarah James

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:

Ms Sarah James, Press Officer at the Brighton Steiner School, complained that an article had inaccurately stated that the school had banned Santa. In fact, the school had no policy on the matter, and did not have Santa at its Christmas bazaar as it tried to offer something different.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper annotated its electronic databases to ensure that if the story was to be repeated it should first be referred to the legal department for an explanation about the complaint.

Report: 76
