Complainant Name:
Graham Elwell

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Express & Star (Wolverhampton)

Complaint:

Graham Elwell complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which contained a number of inaccuracies relating to plans to develop homes on a site in Rugeley, Staffordshire.

Resolution:

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

A report in the Express & Star on March 31 wrongly stated that Elwell Transport plan to build 100 homes on the Pear Tree estate in Rugeley and had made connections to the drainage system. This information was incorrect. The company plans to build 2 houses and although pipes have been laid, they have not been connected. We apologise for these errors in our report.
