Ms Carol Murray

Publication: Scotland on Sunday

Complaint:

Ms Carol Murray, the Chairperson of the Kirkcaldy High School Parent Partnership, complained that the newspaper had published an article that suggested that the school was crime-ridden. She was also concerned that it failed to highlight the achievement of one pupil, who had designed a “Knives Cut Lives” slogan for the Fife area’s campaign against knives.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the editor sent a personal note to the pupil, apologising if the article had taken the shine off her considerable achievements.

Report: 78
