Complainant Name:
Mr David Burns

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Liverpool Echo

Complaint:

Mr David Burns complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an online article relating to claims of police appearing to beat a man in a park - which led to an official investigation - had not distinguished clearly between comment, conjecture and fact, and was misleading as a result.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the article, and arranged for the piece to be linked to a report of the outcome of the matter.
