Publication: Press & Journal (Aberdeen)


Mr Brian Carroll of Aberdeen complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article reporting on strikes at Aberdeen Sheriff Court inaccurately claimed that only 8 members of staff were not at work on the day of the action.


The matter was resolved when, prior to the PCC's involvement, the newspaper published a correction making clear that 28 court staff were on strike and nine formed a picket outside the building.
