Complainant Name:
Ms Christine Jones

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Bedfordshire on Sunday

Complaint:

Ms Christine Jones complained that the newspaper had published inaccurate coverage of her trial and sentencing at Bedford Magistratesí Court.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification in the following terms:

Last month we reported on the sentencing of Christine Jones at Bedford Magistratesí Court. Ms Jones complained that the headline "Mail Manager pays dearly for racist comments" would have led readers to believe that she was convicted and fined for a racist crime. Ms Jones would like it to be known that this was not the case and she was in fact fined for a Harassment Charge which was not in any way related to racism. We are happy to make this point clear.

Report: 79
