Complainant Name:
Professor Timothy Luckhurst

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Herald


Professor Timothy Luckhurst complained to the Press Complaints Commission that a diary item which referred to him was inaccurate and misleading.


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

In our diary of 15th May 2011, we wrote that Professor Luckhurst was opposed to devolution. We are happy to make clear that he was a supporter of devolution when it was introduced by Referendum in 1997; we are also happy to clarify that he is a professor of journalism and not a teacher of media studies.
