Mr Phil Henry complained that a number of comments on the newspapers website in addition to some which appeared in the Web Views section of the newspaper had been attributed to PH, Ashby. He was concerned that readers may have been misled into thinking that he had made the comments, when he had not.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper which said that it would monitor future comments published the following statement in its Web Views section, in addition to appending it to the relevant online articles:

The Telegraph would like to make it clear that PH, Ashby is not Phil Henry of Community Union, Scunthorpe Plate Mill branch secretary, who lives in Ashby.
