Complainant Name:
Rav Singh

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Irvine Herald

Complaint:

Rav Singh of Irvine complained that an article had inaccurately suggested that a website in Kilwinning urged local residents to object to plans for luxury flats to be built in Eglinton Park. In fact, the complainant – who represented the development company – said the website merely encouraged people to write to the council to express their views on the development plans.

Resolution:

The newspaper accepted that the article was inaccurate on the point raised by the complainant. It therefore published a follow-up article which clarified that there was no campaign to oppose the development and that the website simply welcomed people’s comments. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 77
