Complainant Name:
Tom Glancz

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Times


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.


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.
