Mr Peter Neilson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Echo (Bournemouth)


Mr Peter Neilson of Bournemouth complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article about firefighters who receive the London weighting allowance, but live outside of the capital, was inaccurate and misleading.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a follow up article in which a firefighter from Dorset responded to the ‘negative publicity' the fire service had received in the run up to the planned Bonfire Night strike.
