Complaint:

Lord Ahmed of Rotherham complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which credited him for a quote he had not given.

However, the newspaper acknowledged the complainant's position that no such comment had been made and the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the permanent removal of the reference from the online article.
