Complainant Name:
Mr Lance Landau

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Lance Landau complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had repeatedly and incorrectly referred to Raoul Moat as a "cop killer" on its website.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following statement on its news homepage:

"An article on Saturday referred to Raoul Moat as a cop killer. While Moat blinded PC David Rathband and killed his ex-partner's new boyfriend Chris Brown, he did not kill any police officers. We are happy to make this clear."
