Ms C.C. Lee of Kent complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article reporting on a shooting at Smithfield Horse Fair in Dublin was misleading. The complainant was particularly concerned that the headline ‘Hundreds of terrified travellers run for cover after armed rivals take feud to horse fair’ erroneously suggested that the fair was attended exclusively by travellers.

The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the reference to travellers from the headline of the online article.
