Complainant Name:
Mr Matthew Gregory

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Shropshire Star

Complaint:

Mr Matthew Gregory complained that a comment piece about charity donations from the UK to developing countries contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

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

In a comment article written by Nathan Rous on September 15, titled ‘Let Charity Begin At Home’, we stated that Humberside received just £167,000 to help get itself back on its feet after last year’s floods. This figure in fact related to the amount given to Humberside Fire And Rescue Authority - the local authority also received a further figure of more than £5.6 million. We are happy to clarify this point and apologise for any confusion caused.

Report: 78
