Complainant Name:
Mr Patrick Cole

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Star

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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
