Complainant Name:
Councillor S J Boote

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Nottingham Post


Councillor S. J. Boote of Rushcliffe complained that the newspaper had published a photograph of him holding a letter, the details of which it had undertaken to blur. It had not blurred these details, and the caption to the photograph had inaccurately identified the letter as relating to a thermal survey, when it was clearly legible as being related to a planning application, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy).


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper offered an explanation of how the error had occurred, and implemented changes to its editing and checking procedures to ensure that such an error could not occur again.

Report: 78
