Complainant Name:
Mr Jason Joiner

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Jason Joiner complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article - reporting an autograph convention that he was organising - had inaccurately stated that German Second World War pilots attending the event were to charge £150 for an autograph. He said that, in fact, the charge for the event was £10 for a photograph and autograph. The event organisers charged this amount to cover expenses, and the pilots attending had not sought any costs themselves.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a follow-up article, clarifying the situation and publicising the event.
