Mr Shaun Sullivan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: News of the World


Mr Shaun Sullivan complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article had attributed to him a quote which he had not said.


The newspaper accepted that the quote was mistakenly attributed to the complainant. The complaint was resolved when the PCC helped to negotiate publication of the following correction:

IN a round-up of public opinion on political parties, published on April 11, we wrongly attributed a Kent taxi driver's comments to a Mr Shaun Sullivan of Green Lane, Eythorne. We are happy to make clear that those views were not Mr Sullivan's, and we regret and apologise for the confusion and concerns caused.
