Complainant Name:
Miss Robin Webster

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Miss Robin Webster complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on rising sea levels which was inaccurate and misleading. She considered that the headline was misleading but withdrew this part of her complaint upon discovering that the Met Office had already been in contact with the newspaper about this article, and she had not been present at the briefing attended by the journalists.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the online article.
