Complainant Name:
Mr Jeff Parks

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

Mr Jeff Parks of London complained that an article had referred inaccurately to Superintendent David Hartshorn as the top police officer responsible for public order and had claimed misleadingly that he headed the Met's public order branch.

Resolution:

The newspaper explained that Superintendent Hartshorn was a senior figure in the public order branch and was effectively in charge of public order operations. However, it annotated its databases and amended the online version of the article to reflect the correct position. The complaint was resolved on this basis.

Report: 79
