Complainant Name:
Mr Christopher Trow

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Commercial Motor


Mr Christopher Trow complained to the Press Complaints Commission through Wilford Smith Solicitors that an article - reporting the North Eastern Traffic Commissioner's decision to reject his application for an O-licence - had inaccurately stated that a conviction for a drug offence had not been disclosed in the application. He also disputed claims that HM Revenue and Customs had demanded £80,000 for repayments of fuel duty and that a stolen truck had been recovered with the tachograph records missing.


The magazine accepted that the article had incorrectly claimed that the complainant's application had failed to disclose his drug conviction. It offered to publish a clarification on this point only. The parties agreed to correspond directly to agree a wording, and the matter was resolved privately.
