Complainant Name:
Mr Jef Smith

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: West Briton

Complaint:

Mr Jef Smith of Falmouth complained that an article which reported that police had broken up a “rave” at 4am after noise complaints contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a follow-up article on the matter, making clear that the event was a charity fundraiser and not a “rave”. The newspaper also removed a generic photograph of a “rave” from the online version of the article.

Report: 78
