Complainant Name:
Mr Kevin Grogan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Surrey Advertiser


Mr Kevin Grogan of Cobham complained that the newspaper had misrepresented comments he had made about how he would vote in the upcoming county council elections.


The newspaper provided the reporter's notes in support of the quotes it had used. However, it published the following clarification as a resolution to the case:

In an article published by the Surrey Advertiser on May 15, entitled Politicians Need To Be More Accessible, we reported that Cobham resident Kevin Grogan had claimed he would vote Labour in the forthcoming Surrey County Council elections. Mr Grogan has now asked us to make clear he is a supporter of the Conservative Party.
