Publication: Daily Express


Ms Ruth Spiller of the design company Cod Steaks complained that an article reporting on proposals made by the company for a £50,000 piece of public art in Poole contained the inaccurate claim that the project was being funded by the taxpayer.


The complaint was resolved by the publication of the following statement:

Artwork at Retail Park

Following our article Dishes clean YOU out of £50,000 on November 20, 2008, in which we said that the taxpayer would be footing the bill for new artwork at a Poole retail park, we would like to make it clear that the cost of the work will be borne privately by the owners of the site.

Report: 78
