Complainant Name:
Mr Paul Nightingale

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Paul Nightingale complained that an article had stated inaccurately that regional government offices had spent £15million on restaurants, travel and hotels in the past year. In fact, this was the figure for the last five years. The amount for the previous year was £3million.

Resolution:

The newspaper acknowledged that the report had been inaccurate on this point and amended its online article to reflect the correct position. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 80
