Complainant Name:
Leicestershire Constabulary

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mirror

Complaint:

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 McCann’s disappearance) when that was not the official view of the Force.

Resolution:

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
