Complainant Name:
Mr Alex Rutherford

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Cornishman

Complaint:

Mr Alex Rutherford, Licensee of The Studio Bar in Penzance, complained that a court report of an incident where three gang members had assaulted a man had stated incorrectly that the perpetrators had been drinking at the former Studio bar prior to the incident.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved by the publication of the following correction:

The Studio Bar

In our front page article on July 16 about a violent attack by three teenage gang members in Market Jew Street, we incorrectly reported that the incident happened following" a drink-fuelled night at the former Studio Bar".

This information was mistakenly provided by the police. It has since been confirmed that the attackers had been to the Edge nightclub prior to the offence, and not to the Studio Bar. The Studio Bar continues to trade on Bread Street. We are happy to make the position clear.

Report: 79
