Complainant Name:
Marston Group

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Gareth Hughes, Deputy Chief Executive of the Marston Group, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that a January 2009 article on the newspaper's website - which suggested that the actions of a bailiff were connected to the death of a pensioner - was inaccurate and misleading. A report commissioned by Jack Straw had subsequently made clear that there was "no connection between the bailiff activities carried out that day" and the death.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the article from its website.
