Mr and Mrs Lee Bull complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published inaccuracies in relation to a road traffic collision in which they had been involved.

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification:

Talbot Green collision: clarification

On December 13, we printed a picture and report regarding a road traffic collision between an ambulance and a car, which happened on December 12 at the junction of the A4119 and Talbot Road in Talbot Green. We did not intend to suggest either party was to blame for the incident. We apologise for any confusion or upset caused. We also reported that the driver of the car received treatment from the crew of the ambulance involved in the incident, based on information from the Welsh Ambulance Service, which stands by it.

However, the driver of the car has asked us to make clear that he disputes this claim.
