Complainant Name:
Mr Bernard Fagan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Hayes and Harlington Gazette

Complaint:

Mr Bernard Fagan of the Avondale Residents' Association complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which reported on calls from residents of the Wellings, Fitzgerald and Glenister tower blocks to have newly installed windows reviewed following fears about their safety. The complainant was particularly concerned about the accuracy of a claim that the tenants had been ‘fully consulted' on the new windows before fitting.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper co-operated with the complainant on a follow-up article, in which he put forward his views on the adequacy of the local council's consultation process.
