Complainant Name:
Glyn Cousins

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Glyn Cousins complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published misleading information provided by a property development company called Leptos. He pointed out that the resulting article contained inaccurate figures which misrepresented the housing market in Cyprus.


The newspaper explained how the information was obtained in good faith from Leptos but acknowledged that an unintentional slip of a decimal point had led to erroneous figures being published. The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended its online article and marked its cuttings with the correct figures to ensure the mistake is not repeated. The newspaper also made clear its intentions to publish a follow-up article from an alternative point of view.
