A woman

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: The Press (York)


A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article reporting on a man being taken to hospital was inaccurate and misleading.


While the newspaper did not accept that its article was in breach of the Code, the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification:

An article in The Press on October 5, 2010, reported on a police alert in Montague Walk, Poppleton, in which a man was taken to hospital. We have been informed by the family involved that certain details provided to us were incorrect. They would like to make it clear that the man's injuries were sustained while he was carrying out property alterations whereupon an ambulance was called. We apologise to the family for any distress caused.
