Complainant Name:
Mr Edward Stannard

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:

Mr Edward Stannard of Brighton complained that an online article was inaccurate and misleading when it stated that the price of an adult ticket to see Watford play Barnsley in the 2009-10 season had more than doubled since the previous season, and criticised the club as a result. The complainant pointed out that the corresponding fixture in 2008-09 had been a special Fan Appreciation Day in which normal ticket prices had been halved.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper - which pointed out that the readers' comments posted after the article made the position quite clear in very strong terms - removed the article from its website.

Report: 80
