Publication: Daily Star


Mr Patrick Cole complained that an article was inaccurate and misleading when it claimed that there was a threat to blow up the TV programme EastEnders.


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

On October 3 we reported that bloggers had threatened to blow up EastEnders after postman Masood Ahmed had broken his Ramadan fast. While the online posts included a threat of the ultimate sacrifice, we accept that they did not specifically contain a bomb threat.

Report: 78
