Complainant Name:
David and Mark Lyons

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Record

Complaint:

David and Mark Lyons complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published inaccurate allegations that they were "in hiding", had "gone to ground" and had not been seen at their business premises following a notorious murder near Glasgow.

Resolution:

The newspaper attributed the information in the article to an anonymous source. The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following statement:

Lyons Family

In a 20 February article we reported that David and Mark Lyons of Applerow Motors had not been seen at their garage following the murder of Kevin Carroll for fear of reprisals. We have been asked to make clear that this was not the case and that they continued to work as normal after the shooting.
