Complainant Name:
Mr Starbuck Coleman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The People

Complaint:

Mr Starbuck Coleman complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately claimed that he had been ‘bussed in' to form part of the audience to a speech by David Cameron, when he had not been present at the speech.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper apologised to the complainant and published the following correction:

Last week Stephen Coleman was mistakenly identified as sitting behind David Cameron at the University of London.

Mr Coleman is a member of Conservative Future bur was not present that day.

We apologise to Mr Coleman for our error.
