Complainant Name:
Jacques More

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Pick Me Up

Complaint:

Jacques More complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the magazine had published a "real life" article containing a number of inaccuracies and misleading statements regarding his appearance, his relationship with an ex-work colleague and the nature of his advances towards her.

Resolution:

The magazine explained that the article was a first-person account of events and the woman who had provided the story had confirmed that the details were correct during a read back. However, it responded positively to the complainant's concerns and, as a gesture of goodwill, removed the online article. The complainant was satisfied with this action as a resolution to his complaint.
