Complainant Name:
Mr Stephen Emley

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mail

Complaint:

Mr Stephen Emley of Prestwick complained that the newspaper had inaccurately reported that James Shemilt was the top rated tennis player in his age group in Britain.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper offered to publish the following correction:

We described young tennis star James Shemilt, 10, as being rated the best in Britain in his age group on 25 January. While James is one of our countrys brightest tennis prospects, another top junior player, James Sinclair, from Prestwick Tennis club, is Scotlands number one in their age group. Well done to both boys.

Report: 79
