Complainant Name:
Mrs Pauline Robinson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Lancashire Evening Post


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.


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.
