Complainant Name:
Mrs Pauline Robinson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Lancashire Evening Post

Complaint:

Mrs Pauline Robinson of Preston complained that the newspaper had given the misleading impression that she had willingly colluded with a friend in instigating an inquiry by the General Medical Council against her husband, when the other individual had actually been acting against her wishes.

Resolution:

The newspaper did not believe that its original article had been likely to give a misleading impression on this point, but the complaint was resolved when it altered the online article to give a more detailed account of the complainant's role in the affair, making it clear that she had not colluded in instigating the inquiry.
