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.
