Complainant Name:
Mr Gareth Smith

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Times (Glasgow)


Mr Gareth Smith, the owner of ‘No 41’ Café, complained that the reference in an article to ‘new management’ of Café Cibo – the previous name of the establishment – hitting ‘financial trouble’ would misleadingly imply to readers that he was facing financial difficulties.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification:

Café Cibo

We reported last April on the closure of Café Cibo at 41 Kilmarnock Road, Shawlands after former owners hit financial difficulties and returned to Italy. We have been asked to point out a brand new café has since opened for business on the same site. New owner Gareth Smith is running the business as ‘No 41’.

Report: 77
