Complainant Name:
Mr James Stocks

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Edinburgh Evening News

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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.
