Complainant Name:
Mr Joseph Reeve

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Southern Daily Echo


Mr Joseph Reeve of Hampshire complained to the Press Complaints Commission that a report of court proceedings was misleading in breach of the Editors' Code.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification:

In an article of 7 October, we stated that ‘Public order charges against a Pompey fan who threw a plastic bag into Saints spectator area have been dropped'. We would like to make clear that Mr Reeve was only ever alleged to have thrown the bag, and that he always denied the charge.
