Complainant Name:
A woman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser


A woman complained that the newspaper had wrongly stated that she had been suspended by her local council, following reports that she had appeared on adult websites. In fact, she was absent from work on sick leave. The article also described her as a "classroom assistant" when she was an "Additional Support Needs Assistant".


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended its records to reflect the points of complaint.

Report: 79
