Complainant Name:
Mr Stephen Calder

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Press & Journal (Aberdeen)


Mr Stephen Calder of Peterhead complained that the newspaper had illustrated a story about deaths in a flat with a photograph that showed most clearly the building in which he lived. The deaths occurred in a different building.


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

In a caption to a photograph, illustrating the article Double-death mystery probe in Peterhead, we suggested that a police officer was standing outside the flat in Kirk Street, Peterhead where the deaths had occurred. We are happy to make it clear that the main block of flats in the photograph was not where the deaths occurred.

Report: 78
