Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Sam Ward complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an online article had inaccurately reported that a fatal shooting in Bristol had taken place in the St Paul's area during its annual Caribbean street party. The complainant said that, in fact, the shooting took place two hours after the carnival had ended and did not occur in St Paul's, but in the Easton area of Bristol.


The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated amendments to the article.
