Complainant Name:
Police officer Tom Dixon

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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.
