Publication: News of the World


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.


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.
