Complainant Name:
Zak Golombeck

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Zak Golombeck complained that the newspaper reported that a teenager was successful in her appeal to wear traditional Muslim dress to school when this was not the case.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper informed the complainant, via the PCC, that it had already addressed a direct complaint from the school involved. The newspaper had: written to the school to apologise for the error; corrected the online story; annotated its cuttings; and published a prominent correction.

Report: 80
