An organisation

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Nuneaton Weekly Tribune

Complaint:

An organisation complained that an online article had inaccurately claimed that a new six-a-side football league, Soccersixes, had been launched with £1000 prize money on offer. The organisation provided a letter from Trading Standards which confirmed that the claim was to be removed from the Soccersixes website after it was advised of a change in the law.

Resolution:

The newspaper acknowledged the concerns raised by the organisation and made clear that the article under dispute no longer appeared on the newspaper’s website. The complainant was happy to resolve the matter on that basis.

Report: 77
