Complaint:

Mr Tony Seaton of Southampton complained that a comment piece was inaccurate when it stated that 40 per cent of motorists are on the road without a tax disc.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper which had explained that the 40% figure stemmed from a House of Commons Committee of Public Accounts report amended the online version of the article to reflect revised government figures showing that the evasion rates in traffic for motorcycles was 6.5% which rose to 9.8% in regard to active stock.

Report: 77
