Complainant Name:
Mr David Goldsmith

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph


Mr David Goldsmith complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had exaggerated the risks of suffering serious head injuries in skiing, by publishing statistics without proper scientific sources.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper indicated that it had contacted the source of the figures, the Ski Club of Great Britain, and that - as that organisation had subsequently chosen to remove the disputed statistics from their website - the newspaper had decided to suspend the online article.
