Complainant Name:
London Borough of Croydon

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: News of the World

Complaint:

Ms Julie Belvir on behalf of the London Borough of Croydon complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on the dismissal of a head teacher which was inaccurate and misleading.

Resolution:

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

IN February I wrote a piece about head teacher Craig Tunstall's removal from Croydon's Oval Primary School which included a quote from Councillor Mike Fisher claiming Mr Tunstall had "created a climate of fear". This was a comment made by others, and at no point by Mr Fisher. Happy to set the record straight.
