Complainant Name:
Mr Mark Oliver

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Mark Oliver of London complained that the newspaper had inaccurately claimed that new laws proposed by the organisation Cycling England would place blame on car drivers for any collision with a cyclist, even if the cyclist was at fault, when in actuality the intended laws would not place the legal onus on drivers if the cyclist could be proved to have been at fault.

Resolution:

The complainant expressed the view that the length of time that had elapsed since the publication of the article was such that a published correction would no longer be appropriate, and the complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to mark its cuttings with the complainant's comments.
