Complainant Name:
Mr Tony Fox

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Mr Tony Fox of Carmarthen complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article about a police investigation into the death of a man in Lampeter, Wales, was misleading when it referred to a "known crook called Tony Fox". He said that he was the only Tony Fox in the area and had not been contacted by the police.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC helped negotiate publication of the following letter:

Further to your article about a suicide which started a police investigation based on a tip-off from a ghost (The Sun, November 6), I would like to make clear I am not the Tony Fox referred to as "a known crook" in the story.

That Tony Fox was from the Greater Manchester area and is not related to me.

Anthony "Tony" Fox, Carmarthen
