Mark Robertson complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an inaccuracy in an article about the outcome of a General Teaching Council (Scotland) disciplinary hearing involving him in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

We reported last month that Dr Mark Robertson had been permanently struck off the register of the General Teaching Council for Scotland following his conviction on a sex offence involving a pupil. In fact, Robertson can reapply to join the register after a year.
