An organisation

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Royston Crow

Complaint:

An organisation complained that an online article had inaccurately claimed that footballer, Lee Carsley, was supporting the launch of a new six-a-side football league, Soccersixes. The organisation provided a letter from law firm IPS Law which confirmed that its client, Lee Carsley, did not have any involvement with, or support, the football league.

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
