Complainant Name:
Mr David Goldsmith

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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.
