Complainant Name:
Mr David Grant

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Kilmarnock Standard

Complaint:

Mr David Grant of Kilmarnock complained that a report of a court case in which he was involved was inaccurate and misleading.

Resolution:

Mr David Grant of Kilmarnock complained that a report of a court case in which he was involved was inaccurate and misleading.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction and apology, in addition to removing the online version of the article:

A recent article about a man convicted for careless driving was incorrectly headlined “Preacher swore at car couple”. David Grant of Kilmarnock was accused in court of swearing at two people in another car. However, this formed no part of the complaint and was dismissed by the sheriff. We are happy to set the record straight and apologise for the error.

Report: 78
