Publication: Scotland on Sunday


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 areas campaign against knives.


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
