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 peoples comments. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 77
