Police officer Tom Dixon

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror


Police officer Tom Dixon complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which reported that he had been accused of attacking his fiancée and a love rival with a baton and CS spray when this was not the case.


The newspaper explained that the information had come from a confidential source but was happy to accept that the complainant had at no point been accused of, or charged with, attacking his fiancée and her acquaintance with a baton and CS spray. The PCC negotiated the prompt removal of the online article and the complainant was satisfied with the outcome.
