Publication: Daily Mail


Councillor Steve Reed on behalf of Lambeth Council complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on an event marking the 30th anniversary of the Brixton riots which contained inaccuracies and was misleading with respect to the role played by the Council.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction:

Lambeth Council

An article on April 9 suggested that Lambeth Council had spent thousands of pounds on an event to mark the 30th anniversary of the Brixton riots. In fact, the council did not directly fund this event. We are happy to set the record straight.
