Complainant Name:
Tom Glancz

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Times

Complaint:

Tom Glancz complained to the Press Complaints Commission that two of the newspaper's columnists had made inaccurate references to the crime rate in Nottingham in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code.

Resolution:

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

In recent columns, both Daisy Waugh and AA Gill referred to what they believed to be Nottingham's high crime rate. In fact, the city's crime rate fell by 50% from 2002-3 to the year ending in February, and the city was ranked 25th in Home Office figures for violence against the person in 2009-10. We are happy to set the record straight.
