Complainant Name:
Mr James Stocks

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Edinburgh Evening News


Mr James Stocks complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on his career as a chef which contained inaccuracies, and in particular misleadingly implied that he had never worked with chefs including Marco Pierre White.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the headline of the online article and the addition of the following footnote to the online article:

Marco Pierre White has since acknowledged that James Stocks worked for him and includes Mr Stocks in a list on his website of his successful former employees.
