Complainant Name:
Ms Susan Pearman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Pocklington Post


Ms Susan Pearman of Pocklington complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately stated that she was due to appear on a specific date at a magistrates' court on charges of driving without due care and attention, when no date had been set and the charges had been dropped.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper, which affirmed it had simply reported the information received from the courts, agreed to publish the following statement on the matter:

We previously reported that Ms Susan Pearman, 54, of Jenkins Close, Pocklington, was facing charges of driving without due care and attention on Yapham Road at Fangfoss. We understand that all charges against her have now been dropped.
