Complainant Name:
Haringey Council

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Kevin Crompton, Chief Executive of Haringey Council, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published inaccurate claims that Haringey Council had tried to "gag the press" and "conceal" its role in the events that led to the death of Peter Connelly ("Baby P").


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

Haringey Council

The Sun reported on June 8 that John Suddaby, former head of Haringey Council legal department, had tried to gag the Press from reporting Haringey's role in the Baby P case.

This was incorrect. The only court orders Haringey sought were to protect the welfare of children. We are happy to make this clear.
