Complainant Name:
Leicestershire Constabulary

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mirror


Leicestershire Constabulary complained that an article had quoted a Leicestershire police source being critical of the Portuguese police (in relation to the investigation into Madeleine McCanns disappearance) when that was not the official view of the Force.


The matter was resolved when the newspaper agreed to place a note of the complaint in its archive files, which made clear that the quoted source was not speaking on behalf of the Force.

Report: 76
