Ian Strachan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

Ian Strachan complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article containing inaccuracies (which had originally been published by the Daily Mail in 2008) was available on the newspaper's website. He said the piece was incorrect in a number of respects, especially in claims that he: was bisexual and had had an affair with a man; was penniless and regularly took financial advantage of others.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the piece from the newspaper's website.
