Complainant Name:
Mr Steve Hollingsworth

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Cleethorpes Chronicle

Complaint:

Mr Steve Hollingsworth, Managing Director of the Grimsby & Scunthorpe Media Group, complained that an article was inaccurate and misleading when it stated that 58 jobs were “expected to be lost at the Grimsby Telegraph after a sister company announced that it was looking at closing the paper’s printing press”.

Resolution:

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

'Our article of 2 October headlined ‘Jobs threat at the Telegraph’ stated that 58 jobs were “expected to be lost at the Grimsby Telegraph after a sister company announced that it was looking at closing the paper’s printing press”. Following a complaint by the owners of the Grimsby Telegraph to the Press Complaints Commission, we would like to make clear that any possible loss of employment related to employees of Harmsworth Printing (HPL) – which prints the paper – rather than the newspaper itself’.

Report: 78
