Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Catherine Rogerson complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper's coverage of the student tuition fee protests contained a quote in defence of the levels of violence used that was wrongly attributed to her.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper arranged for the following remedial action: the removal of the reference to the complainant from the online article and the deletion of the cached version from Google; the submission of informal requests for removal on behalf of the complainant to other news sources that had re-published the original piece; and the annotation of its archive with the complainant's concerns for future reference.
