Complainant Name:
Councillor Susan Woodward

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Burton Mail


Councillor Susan Woodward complained through Browne Jacobson LLP that an editorial which claimed that she had gone back on an offer to meet with political opponents any time, any place, anywhere was inaccurate and misleading as she did not make such comments.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction and apology:

In an editorial published on 30 October 2007 entitled Councillor left with egg on her face we suggested that Councillor Susan Woodward had reneged on her offer to meet with her political opponents any time, any place, anywhere by refusing to attend a meeting arranged by RAGE. We are happy to make clear that Councillor Woodward did not make the comments attributed to her and we apologise to Councillor Woodward for any offence caused.

Report: 77
