Complaint:

Mr Isaac Reed complained that the newspaper had inaccurately reported the circumstances of his arrest in Newmarket and the nature of his offence.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification, with due prominence in the newspaper and online, in the following terms:

Following our article on May 7 ('Cricketing drinker is stumped by officers'), we wish to clarify that defendant Isaac Reed, of Adastral Close, Newmarket, pleaded guilty to using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or disorderly behaviour, within the hearing or sight of persons likely to be caused alarm or distress. Mr Reed, 27,was stopped by officers in Exning Road, Newmarket, where he was practising cricket shots with a piece of wood he had found. Earlier, he had been ordered to leave the area outside De Niro's nightclub. Mr Reed was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay 60 costs.
