Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Falkirk Herald


James Davidson complained to the Press Complaints Commission on behalf of Corrie Data Services that the newspaper had published inaccurate information in relation to a court case.


The complaint was resolved between the parties with the publication of the following correction:

With reference to the article ‘Student downloaded indecent pictures of children', which appeared in The Falkirk Herald of March 31, we would like to clarify several points.

The photographs in question were contained on a computer taken to Corrie Data Services for repair and it was them who alerted police to their presence. The company was not involved in the case in any other way and we apologise to them for any impression that they were. Additionally, the accused was convicted of possessing indecent images and not downloading them.

We are happy to make these points.
